All-November recipients Mario Chalmers, D.J. Augustin & Michael Beasley welcome a couple of newcomers to their club in this edition of the Big 12 All-December team.
Guard – Mario Chalmers – Kansas – JR
12.3ppg, 4.7apg, 3.1spg
Best game – Dec 8th – DePaul – 12 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists, 7 steals
Status quo in the Big Ten, as Drew Neitzel is the only person on the All-December team that didn’t make the All-November team.
Guard – Drew Neitzel – Michigan State – SR
14.5ppg, 4.6apg, 2.5rpg
Best game – Dec 15th – IPFW – 18 points, 5 assists, 4 boards, 2 steals
Senior Neitzel’s scoring is down this year, but he is doing something far more important to the team’s success – taking care of the ball. He has a very solid 4.29 assists to turnover ratio, and in the month of December dished out 32 dimes and only turned the ball over eight times.
