Kristian Doolittle (Oklahoma) picked up his third Big 12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week award of the season while Kalib Boone (Oklahoma State) was recognized for the first time as Newcomer of the Week.

 

Doolittle was the Big 12’s top scorer last week with an average of 23.5 points along with 9.0 rebounds in Oklahoma’s games against Iowa State and at No. 3 Kansas. He knocked down 6-of-11 (54.5) 3-pointers, including a career high five at KU, and 13-of-16 (81.3) free throws. The senior forward sparked OU to a 29-point win over Iowa State with 20 points, six rebounds, three steals and three assists last Wednesday. He then produced 27 points and 12 rebounds on the road against Kansas – the most points by a visiting player in Allen Fieldhouse this season. In his last three games, Doolittle has produced two games of 27 points and 12 rebounds. No other Big 12 player has accomplished this in a single game this season.

 

The freshman Boone helped the Cowboys record their first two-win week in Big 12 play. He averaged 11.0 points on a team-high 66.7 percent shooting, and knocked down 14-of-18 free throws (77.8) in the wins at K-State and at home against No. 24 Texas Tech. Against the Red Raiders, the 6-9 Boone scored a game-high 16 points and drew a game-high eight fouls, the most by an OSU player this year. He converted 12-of-14 free throws, which are the most by a Cowboy since February of 2018. Inside the last 25 seconds, Boone blocked a key shot and converted a free throw to preserve the win.
