For the second straight year, the Big 12 has named Iowa State’s Melvin Ejim the Men’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
Ejim becomes the first to receive that title along with Big 12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Year.
The 23-year-old Canadian is the epitome of student-athlete. He’s majoring in history and minoring in business, and is pulling a 3.7 GPA.
Ejim averaged 32 minutes and almost 18 points whenever he wasn’t in the classroom.
