Senior guard Azavier Williams was named to the 2019-20 Western Athletic Conference first team by a recent vote of the five league coaches.

Williams, a 6-1 guard, helped lead the youthful Buffs to an overall season record of 10 wins and 11 losses, including a 3-5 record in the WAC. Four of those losses came against WAC co-champions Great Bend and Hays. The Buffs finished in third place, ahead of Liberal and Dodge City.
