  • Text size: + -

NEW YORK -- Former Syracuse University guard Michael Carter-Williams has been named the NBA's Rookie of the Year.

Carter-Williams is the second player in the school's history to win the award. Derrick Coleman was the other, back in the 1990-91 season.

Carter-Williams averaged 16.7 points, 6.3 assists and 6.2 rebounds per game in his rookie campaign, just one of three rookies to put up those numbers since 1950.

Throughout the season, Carter-Williams posted two triple-doubles and 17 double-doubles.

He was the 11th pick in last year's draft and helped lead the Orange to the Final Four in his final season at SU.
