Yet more trophies for the Jayhawks, and hopefully, our boys won't need to sell them like Bjorn Borg is selling his Wimbledon hardware. A hint to Brandon Rush and all of the Jayhawk fans who are disappointed he didn't make First Team all Big 12 from the AP:
Opposing coaches want him to leave. That's why they say things like "he's a pro," and that's why they voted him First Team All B12. I think you can make an argument that he belongs there, but he wouldn't be on my first team. Not this year anyhow.
In any case, here are the awards:
