Jeffrey Carroll unanimously selected to Preseason All-Big 12 team

oklahoma state-jeffrey carroll

The Big 12 Conference has released the picks for their Preseason All-Big 12 team, and Jeffrey Carroll is a unanimous pick.

Carroll averaged 17.5 points per game, 6.6 rebounds per game, and 1.2 assists per game during Oklahoma State’s 2016-17 season. The Cowboys went 20-13 and 9-9 in conference play. The Cowboys received an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, where they fell in the first round to Michigan. They ended the season on a four game losing streak, all to teams ranked in the Top 25.

After the season was over, head coach Brad Underwood left the team, and Oklahoma State promoted Mike Boynton Jr. to the position. Underwood only lasted a year at Oklahoma State.

Jeffrey Carroll improved dramatically from his sophomore season to his junior season, and if he stays on that trend, Oklahoma State could be a threat to stronger teams once again. The Cowboys seemed to have turned a slight corner, but they need to keep building in the midst of a massive scandal surrounding their assistant coach, Lamont Evans.
