Wichita State’s Garrett Stutz and Joe Ragland earned All-Missouri Valley Conference honors on Tuesday, giving the Shockers two first-team picks for the first time since 1983.

The honors didn’t stop there for the MVC champions. Toure Murry claimed a spot on the All-Defensive team and honorable mention all-conference. Junior Carl Hall was named the Newcomer of the Year. Ben Smith joins Murry on the All-Defensive team.

WSU earned Defensive Team of the Year honors for a second straight season.

Northern Iowa forward Seth Tuttle recieved Freshman of the Year honors. Creighton center Gregory Echenique was named Defensive Player of the Year.
