After leading the Oklahoma Sooners to the No. 3-seed in the upcoming Big 12 Championship Tournament, senior forward Kristian Doolittle, junior forward Brady Manek and junior guard Austin Reaves were each awarded All-Big 12 honors following the conclusion of the 2019-20 regular season.

Doolittle is the lone senior on this year’s OU squad, and after leading the Sooners with 15.8 points per game, 8.9 rebounds and 1.3 steals, he has been named to the All-Big 12 First Team. Also, his 10 point-rebound double-doubles in 29 games played this season are a testament to his consistent production. The Edmond native becomes the first Oklahoma player to make the league’s first team since Trae Young did so in 2018.

Manek, a long-time teammate of Doolittle dating back to their youth, earned a spot on this season’s All-Big 12 Third Team. In addition to averaging 14.4 ppg, 6.2 boards and 1.2 blocks on the year, his 71 made three-pointers rank fourth in the conference.

One day after lighting up the scoreboard for 41 points in the regular season finale, Reaves was recognized with All-Big 12 Newcomer Team and All-Big 12 Honorable Mention honors for a successful first campaign as a Sooner. The former Wichita State transfer had a reputation as a sharp-shooter from beyond the arc when he arrived to Oklahoma, but this year he’s shown just how diverse his offensive game truly is.
