New, 5 comments

The Big 12 dominated the SEC/Big 12 Challenge, winning 7 of the 10 match-ups. Only West Virginia was upset on the weekend, losing to 14-7 Florida in a game that was never close.

Player of the Week - Buddy Hield, Guard, Oklahoma

The guy is good and, honestly, I feel the only way Hield doesn't get this award every week is because the people in charge of the selection want to appear non-biased. I'll be happy when he is playing elsewhere next season.

Newcomer of the Week - Kerwin Roach, Guard, Texas

This is the first such award for the highly regarded freshman from Houston. The Texas guard averaged 18.5 points and 8.0 rebounds per game to help the Longhorns gain victories over TCU and Vanderbilt, including his first career double-double against the Commodores (15 points, 11 rebounds).

Conference Standings

Movin on Up -

Texas continues to impress as it holds onto a spot in the upper echelon of the conference.

K-State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State and TCU are beginning to separate from the pack.
