Tre Mitchell Only Big 12 player on Karl Malone Award Watch List

NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma State at Texas Tech

Texas forward Tre Mitchell was the only Big 12 player selected to  the Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year Award watch list released on Thursday.

Mitchell was one of eight transfers new Texas head coach Chris Beard brought to the program this offseason. The former UMass forward transferred to Texas in June after scoring 18.8 points and pulling down 7.2 rebounds per game for the Minutemen last season.

That’s a carbon-copy of his numbers from the previous season.


Mitchell joins an all-new frontcourt that is likely to feature former Utah forward Timmy Allen, former Vanderbilt forward Dylan Disu and former Creighton forward Christian Bishop, among others.

The Malone Power Forward of the Year Award is named after the former NBA Hall of Famer, who went to college at Louisiana Tech. The award recognizes the top power forward in Division I men’s college basketball.
