Collier, who shared the award with Arizona State’s Remy Martin, averaged 7.6 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists this season.
From Colorado’s press release:
Collier is the third Buffalo to win one of the Pac-12’s yearly honors, joining Andre Roberson, the 2012-13 Defensive Player of the Year, and George King, the 2015-16 Most Improved Player of the year. He shares the award with Arizona State freshman guard Remy Martin.
This is the Pac-12’s inaugural Sixth Man of the Year Award. One former Buffalo has a similar honor on his resume. Levi Knutson was the Co-Big 12 Conference Sixth Man of the Year in 2010-11.
A native of Denver, Collier came off the bench for 16 of 18 Pac-12 contests, averaging 8.0 points and 1.6 assists while shooting 48 percent from 3-point range during league play. He ranked second in the Pac-12 in 3-point accuracy during conference games hitting on 29 of 60 from long range.
His season-high came just two games ago as he dropped 19 points against UCLA.
Arizona State will face Colorado in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament on Wednesday, pitting the two award honorees against each other.
