The Big 12 announced all-conference selections in men’s basketball Sunday morning, and Kansas State’s Dean Wade and Barry Brown Jr. both received recognition.

Wade was named to the All-Big 12 First Team, along with guards Devonte’ Graham of Kansas, Keenan Evans of Texas Tech, Trae Young of Oklahoma, and Jevon Carter of West Virginia.
Brown was named to the All-Big 12 Second Team, along guards Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk of Kansas and Manu Lecomte of Baylor and forwards Kenrich Williams of TCU and Mohamed Bamba of Texas. Brown also joined Carter, Bamba, Sagaba Konate of West Virginia, and Zhaire Smith of Texas Tech on the All-Defensive Team.
Graham, Evans, Carter, Mykhailiuk, Lecomte, and Williams are all seniors, and Young and Bamba are likely NBA lottery picks. So Wade and Brown likely will be the only returning all-conference first- or second-team players.
