Kansas Basketball on Twitter

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Frank Mason III of Kansas has won the 2017 John R. Wooden Award as the nation's most outstanding men's college basketball player.  The award was announced last night (FRI) during ESPN's College Basketball Awards. Mason also received the Bob Cousy Award as the nation's top point guard, completing a sweep of national player of the year. Mason is the second Jayhawk to win the Wooden Award; Danny Manning won it in 1988. Mason had already earned player of the year honors from The Associated Press, Sporting News, and the National Association of College Basketball Coaches. Mason is the first player in Big 12 and Kansas history to average 20 points and 5 assists per game for a season. Mason concluded his career sixth on the KU career-scoring list at 1,885 and sixth in career assists at 576. He is only player in Kansas history to rank that high in both career points and assists.
