When asked if Trae Young is the Big 12 Player of the Year, Kansas State head coach Bruce Weber didn’t exactly answer in the affirmative.
According to Cody Stavenhagen of the Tulsa World, Weber thinks that the player of the year award should go to the conference’s champion.
Bruce Weber was asked if Trae Young is the Big 12 Player of the Year. "To me, the Big 12 Player of the Year is (for) the people who win the league." #Sooners

The Sooners completed an 86-77 victory over Weber’s Wildcats. Young scored 27 points during the game, and is scoring a nation-leading 28.3 points per game. He also leads the nation in assists per game with 9.2. Of all the players in college basketball, no one contributes more to their team’s offense than Young.
The Sooners are in a three-way logjam at eighth in the Big 12 with a 7-9 record. Also holding 7-9 records are Baylor and Texas. The only two teams in the conference with worse records are Oklahoma State and Iowa State.
With a 74-72 win over Texas Tech on Saturday, the Kansas Jayhawks clinched a share of the Big 12 Championship, and currently leads the Big 12.
