Devonte’ Graham, Kansas
The sophomore guard was the Jayhawks’ go-to player in the title-game victory over West Virginia. He finished with 27 points, matching his season high. He finished with a career-best four steals. In the first two victories, over Kansas State and Baylor, Graham had 16 assists. Graham was voted the tournament’s most outstanding player and averaged 17.3 points for the event.
Perry Ellis, Kansas
Saturday marked the only day Ellis wasn’t the Jayhawks’ scoring leader. He still had a solid game with 17 points and five boards after scoring 21 against Kansas State and 20 against Baylor. It’s the second time Ellis has made the Big 12 All-Tournament team. He also made it as a freshman in 2013, the last time KU won the Big 12 Tournament.

Devin Williams, West Virginia
Williams saved his best game for the championship, powering to 31 points and 10 rebounds. The point total was a career best and it marked his 15th double-double of the season, the most of any Big 12 player.
Buddy Hield, Oklahoma
What if that last-season shot against West Virginia had counted? Hield might have been the tournament’s MVP no matter what happened on Saturday. His 39 points against Iowa State was his second-most productive game this season and second-highest total for a Big 12 Tournament game.
Georges Niang, Iowa State
Niang played only one game but it was terrific. He scored 31 in the quarterfinal loss to Oklahoma. In the process he became the second-leading career scorer in Big 12 Tournament history. It marked the third time that Niang was chosen to the All-Tournament team.
