Oklahoma State's only two returning starters earned All-Big 12 honors Sunday.

Cam McGriff and Lindy Waters, two of OSU's three captains, received All-Big 12 honorable mention recognition. It marked the first conference awards for McGriff and Waters, both juniors.

McGriff led the Cowboys in scoring (12.4 points per game) and rebounding (7.4 rebounds per game) and also took 24 of OSU's 40 charges.

Waters, whose versatility allowed him to play all over the floor for the Cowboys, ranked third in the Big 12 with a 45.3 3-point percentage and second in the conference in free-throw percentage at 90.8.

McGriff, Waters and the ninth-seeded Cowboys will try to extend their season in the Big 12 tournament. They face No. 8 seed TCU at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Kansas City.
