Warren was last season's unanimous choice as Big 12 Freshman of the Year and was a second-team All-Big 12 honoree. He was also tabbed a freshman All-American (Athlon Sports named him national freshman of the year) after averaging 14.6 points and 3.1 assists per game. Warren led OU with 67 3-pointers and a .372 mark from behind the arc. His 67 treys set an OU freshman record.
The 6-4, 203-pounder from Fort Worth, Texas, was a seven-time Big 12 Rookie of the Week in 2008-09 for the 30-6 Sooners. He recorded seven games of at least 20 points, the most by an OU freshman since Tim McCalister in 1983-84. Warren scored at least 27 points four times and broke the 30-point barrier twice.
Three players -- Kansas State's Denis Clemente and Texas's Avery Bradley and Dexter Pittman -- were honorable mention picks for this year's Preseason All-Big 12 Team. Bradley was named preseason freshman of the year and Iowa State's Marquis Gilstrap was named preseason newcomer of the year.
