All-Big 12 Third Team: Kansas State's Rodney McGruder, Texas' Gary Johnson

The All-Big 12 first, second and third team basketball teams are out. We've already looked at the first and second team so here's the third team: Colorado Buffaloes G Cory Higgins, Kansas State Wildcats G Rodney McGruder, Nebraska Cornhuskers G Lance Jeter, Oklahoma State Cowboys F Marshall Moses, Texas Longhorns F Gary Johnson and Texas A&M Aggies F David Loubeau.

McGruder's name stands out on that list. He's been fairly consistent for K-State this year averaging over 11 points per game but he has a high ceiling and the ability to have big games. He's a nice complement to Jacob Pullen when both are playing well. K-State has just one loss when he goes over 15 points so his success usually translates into team success.

Here's the first team: Baylor Bears G LaceDarius Dunn, Colorado Buffaloes G Alec Burks, Kansas Jayhawks F Marcus Morris, Kansas State Wildcats G Jacob Pullen, Texas Longhorns G/F Jordan Hamilton and Missouri Tigers G Marcus Denmon.    

Here's the second team: Baylor Bears F/C Perry Jones III, Iowa State Cyclones G Diante Garrett, Kansas Jayhawks F Markieff Morris, Texas Longhorns F Tristan Thompson and Texas A&M Aggies F Khris Middleton.
