Despite his 23 double-doubles in 31 games this season, the Mad Ants’ Alize Johnson didn’t finish in the top three in G League Rookie of the Year voting by coaches and general managers. The award went to Angel Delgado of Agua Caliente; he averaged 18.5 points and 14.8 rebounds, including a league-record 31 rebounds in a game. Finishing second and third were Long Island’s Theo Pinson and Sioux Falls’ Yante Maten.
