Big 12 honors 50 KU freshmen

Fifty Kansas University freshmen were named to the All-Big 12 Rookie Team, the league announced Thursday.

Oklahoma, with 60, was the only school with more student-athletes on the team, which recognizes new, first-time incoming freshmen who have completed 24 semester hours of non-remedial coursework and achieved a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.00.

Very happy to see KO on this list. I expected to see Pollard but very surprised not to see Mykailiuk's name. For the Men's BBall to finish with a 2.8, there must have been 2 or 3 guys that really struggled.
