Self, Collins and Aldrich respond on recent award

Quotes from Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich after being named Big 12 Co-Players of the Year today in a poll conducted by the Big 12 head coaches.

Bill Self

"Both Sherron and Cole had great years last season and hopefully that will carry over into this season.They, and our entire team, have prepared very hard for this upcoming year. I am happy for both of them, but they will tell you that preseason honors do not make for a good season. My hope is for them to play at a high level in a league that will be very, very strong."

Sherron Collins

"There are a lot of great players in this league and to be selected for this is a nice honor. Our whole team has been working hard to get ready for the season and we can’t wait until next Friday (Late Night in the Phog) to get into Allen (Fieldhouse)."

Cole Aldrich

"This is a great honor for me and Sherron and even more special because it comes from the Big 12 coaches. All of the preseason honors and rankings are a reflection of our team and its potential. Now we need to live up to that potential. With Boot Camp ending, we have really come together as a team and are looking forward to Late Night next Friday (Oct. 16)."
