Star:

Kansas State took two of the top Big 12 postseason awards Tuesday, with Brad Hill being honored as coach of the year and junior right-hander A.J. Morris winning pitcher of the year.

Hill led the Wildcats to their best season ever with a 39-15-1 record and as high as a No. 10 ranking in the Baseball America poll.

“This award isn’t about me, it’s about the players,” said Hill, the first K-State league coach of the year since Mike Clark in 1990.

Morris, who also made the All-Big 12 first team, led the conference in wins (12), ERA (1.61) and was second in complete games (four).
