Iowa State senior forward Melvin Ejim is The Associated Press Big 12 Player of the Year.

The AP awards were announced Monday, when Ejim and Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins were unanimous picks on the All-Big 12 first team. Wiggins is the league's Freshman of the Year.

Ejim was second in the Big 12 with both his 18.2 points and 8.6 rebounds a game. No other league player ranked in the top 10 in both of those categories.

Ejim and Wiggins are joined on the first team by league scoring leader Juwan Staten from West Virginia, Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart and Iowa State's DeAndre Kane, the Marshall transfer who was the unanimous choice as the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year.

Oklahoma's Lon Kruger is the AP Coach of the Year.
