Barnes Named Big 12 Coach Of The Year

By  | 

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas coach Rick Barnes criticized his players publicly, only to back off later. He chastised himself for "coaching mad" during a midseason lull.
He benched scholarship players and gave away valuable court time
to a walk-on to prove a point.
Barnes hit all the right buttons this season. He pushed and
pulled the No. 6 Longhorns to a school-record 26 regular-season
victories and a share of their second Big 12 title in three years.
For all that - even without Kevin Durant - Barnes was named The
Associated Press Big 12 coach of the year for the second year in a
row and third time overall today.
In balloting of media members who cover the Big 12 on a regular
basis, Barnes garnered 14 votes and Baylor's Scott Drew received
five.
