Sophomore Alec Burks was named honorable mention in voting by the coaches, the conference announced.
Higgins was named to the third-team of the All-Conference team during his sophomore and junior seasons. He will begin his senior season next month with a chance to pass Roby and become the program's all-time leading scorer.
Higgins has scored 1,391 points in his career and is ninth on the CU career scoring list. Higgins is not just an offensive-minded player. He has led the Big 12 in steals in each of the past two seasons, a solid accomplishment considering the talented guards and forwards throughout the league in that time.
