IRVING, Texas (ISU) — Iowa State senior Will Clyburn is the Big 12's Rookie of the Week Award winner for the second week in a row after averaging 21.0 points and 7.0 rebounds in two games during the week. Clyburn was picked by a select panel of media who cover Big 12 hoops.

A native of Detroit, Mich., Clyburn shot 50 percent from the field (12-24 FG), 41.7 percent (5-12 3FG) from beyond the arc and 93.0 percent (13-14 FT) at the charity stripe in two games. Clyburn had 14 points in a 78-76 loss at Oklahoma State on Wednesday and capped off the week with a 28-point, 10-rebound performance in a 79-71 victory over Baylor.

Clyburn was 7-of-14 from the field, 3-of-6 from 3-point range and 11-of-12 at the free-throw line vs. Baylor while registering his sixth double-double and fourth 20-point game of the season.

Clyburn, who has won Big 12 Rookie of the Week honors three times this season, has registered a double-double in three of his last four games, averaging 19.5 points and 8.5 rebounds in that span.
