NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Former Oklahoma basketball player Buddy Hield and OU softball player Paige Parker have been named the Big 12 men's and women's athletes of the year.

Hield ended his OU career by average 25 points and 5.7 rebounds per game as he helped the Sooners reach the NCAA Final Four. He was also named national player of the year by several organizations and was chosen the Big 12 Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.
