BIG 12 POSTSEASON AWARDS

IRVING, Texas - Iowa State men's basketball was well-represented on the Big 12 annual postseason award list, announced today by the conference office. Sophomore Royce White was named to the All-Big 12 First Team, senior Scott Christopherson earned third-team honors, senior Chris Allen was an honorable mention pick along with sophomore Melvin Ejim. White also made the all-rookie team.

White, a 6-8, 270-pound forward from Minneapolis, Minn., is the fifth Cyclone to earn All-Big 12 First-Team accolades by the conference coaches: Dedric Willoughby (1997), Marcus Fizer (2000), Jamaal Tinsley (2001) and Craig Brackins (2009).

White is the only player from a power-six conference to rank in the top-100 nationally in rebounding (44th-9.2) and assists (50th-5.2). Both his season rebounding (284) and assist (160) rank in Iowa State's single-season top-20.

Christopherson, a native of LaCrosse, Wis., is Iowa State's career leader in 3-point percentage (44.2 percent). Christopherson is currently the Big 12 leader in both 3-point percentage (45.5 percent) and free-throw percentage (89.5 percent).

A native of Lawrenceville, Ga., Allen ranks sixth in Big 12 3-pointers per game at 2.3. Allen's 72 3-pointers ranks ninth on Iowa State's single-season record chart.

Ejim, who hails from Toronto, Ontario, is averaging 9.4 points and 6.7 rebounds. Ejim improved his play dramatically in conference action, averaging 10.9 points and 7.1 rebounds. His conference rebounding average was the sixth-best total in the league.
