Oklahoma Sooners Basketball | Buddy Hield Wins Naismith Trophy

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Buddy Hield has wowed an entire nation throughout the Sooners magical run to the Final 4. Even though that run ended in a less than desirable fashion last night, that doesn't diminish what Buddy Hield accomplished this season. The fruit of Hield's incredible season was rewarded earlier today when he received the Naismith Trophy which recognizes the season's best college basketball player

While we might be a tad biased, we can think of no better and more deserving person of this prestigious award than Buddy Hield. He led all power 5 players in scoring at 25.4 points per game all the while grabbing 5.7 rebounds.

I think I can speak for the entire Sooner nation, by not only offering our congratulations, but thanking you for the opportunity and the privilege to not only represent the University of Oklahoma, but also for being an incredible basketball player.
