2016 Naismith Trophy Winner Announced


Buddy Hield may have been shut out at the Final Four, but he took home another award after a stellar senior season.

The Oklahoma senior guard was named winner of the 2016 Naismith Trophy on Sunday as the top player in college basketball.

Hield joins Blake Griffin as the only Sooners to capture the award — after beating out finalists Tyler Ulis (Kentucky), Denzel Valentine (Michigan State) and Malcolm Brogdon (Virginia) for the honor.

Hield averaged 25 points, 5.7 rebounds and two assists during his senior season.
