Oklahoma players earned multiple Big 12 Conference honors Sunday.

Senior forward Romero Osby was selected to the All-Big 12 first team. Senior guard Steven Pledger and junior forward Amath M'Baye were selected to the All-Big 12 third team.

M'Baye also received a place on the Big 12 All-Rookie team.

Osby is Oklahoma's first All-Big 12 first-team selection since Blake Griffin earned the honor in 2009. Osby was joined on the first team by Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart, Kansas State's Rodney McGruder and Kansas' Ben McLemore and Jeff Withey.

M'Baye, a transfer from Wyoming, was also named to the Big 12 All-Rookie team.

All voting for the awards was done by conference head coaches. They were not allowed to vote for their own players.
