All-Big 12 Honorable Mention: Kansas' Brady Morningstar, Tyrel Reed, Missouri's Laurence Bowers, Ricardo Ratliffe

We've seen the firstsecond and third All-Big 12 basketball teams already so the final team to look at is the All-Big 12 honorable mention where there's some pretty good talent. Here's the team:

Quincy Acy (Baylor), Scott Christopherson (Iowa State), Brady Morningstar (Kansas), Tyrel Reed (Kansas), Laurence Bowers (Missouri), Ricardo Ratliffe (Missouri), Cade Davis (Oklahoma), Andrew Fitzgerald (Oklahoma), Cory Joseph (Texas), B.J. Holmes (Texas A&M), John Roberson (Texas Tech).

The local guys include a pair from Kansas and Missouri.

The two from Kansas -- Morningstar and Reed -- are both seniors and both underrated role players the Jayhawks. It will sound weird to say but I'd argue KU's keys to success are nearly as much about Morningstar and Reed as the Morris twins. The two from Missouri -- Bowers and Ratliffe -- are both big men on a team that doesn't highlight the big men. Bowers and Ratliffe are both scrappy and, despite Mizzou's rebounding numbers, can hold their own in the paint.
