ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Booker Woodfox, whose 3-point shooting helped Creighton earn a share of its first Missouri Valley title since 2002, is the conference's Larry Bird Player of the Year.
The senior guard was honored Tuesday. He leads the MVC with 83 3-pointers on 50.9 percent accuracy. His 15.9-point average leads the school and is second best in the Valley.
Creighton is the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament this week after tying top-seeded Northern Iowa for the regular-season title.
Woodfox is the first Creighton player to be player of the year since Kyle Korver won back-to-back awards in 2002 and 2003. He received 17 first-place votes in balloting by the league's coaches and media. Shy Ely of Evansville was second with 12 first-place votes.
