STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - New Oklahoma State basketball coach Brad Underwood has been named a district Coach of the Year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

Underwood was named District 23 Coach of the Year on Thursday after leading Stephen F. Austin to a 28-6 record and a win in the NCAA Tournament.

This is the third straight season Underwood has won the award. The district includes the Southland and Southwestern Athletic conferences.

Underwood was named the new OSU coach on Wednesday after the university announced that it and former coach Travis Ford had mutually agreed to part ways.
