OSU athletics: Trey Reeves, Mackenzie Thomas earn Big 12 postgraduate scholarships

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State men’s basketball player Trey Reeves and Cowgirls softball player Mackenzie Thomas were selected as recipients of the Dr. Prentice Gautt Postgraduate Scholarship.

The Big 12 announced Monday that 20 athletes from across the conference received the scholarship, which is awarded annually in honor of the late Gautt, a former Big 12 Conference staff member and student services’ pioneer.

Recipients must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.200 on a 4.000 scale and participated in at least two years of intercollegiate athletics. The student-athletes must also graduate from their respective member school and enroll in a graduate or professional school of their choice within 15 months of selection for the scholarship.

Reeves, the son of legendary OSU basketball star Bryant “Big Country” Reeves, graduated in December with a degree in accounting and a minor in finance. He’s currently working on his Master of Science in accounting. Trey earned Outstanding Senior honor along with OSU Alumni Association Seniors of Significance.

Reeves was also the recipient of the 2019 Dr. Gerald Lage Academic Achievement Award, the Big 12’s highest academic honor. Reeves is also the lone basketball player in the conference to win the postgraduate scholarship. 

Thomas is the lone Big 12 softball player to win.

She is a three-time Academic All-Big 12 honoree. She earned a degree in university studies in August and is currently working on her Master of Science in communication sciences & disorders.

Thomas also started 114 games, becoming a big defensive presence during the Cowgirls’ Women’s College World Series run last season.
