Hield Named Big 12 Player Of The Week

Oklahoma men's basketball player Buddy Hield is this season's first recipient of the Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week award, the conference announced Monday.

The junior guard from Freeport, Bahamas, set a school record and tied the Big 12 standard for most 3-pointers in a game without a miss by going 7 for 7 in Sunday's season-opening 78-53 win over Southeastern Louisiana. Hield shattered the previous school mark of six 3-pointers without a miss that was shared by five players.

Hield finished with a game-high 25 points and added seven rebounds and a pair of assists in 28 minutes of work. His seven treys were the most by a Sooner in four seasons.

The Big 12 Player of the Week award was the first of Hield's career. Iowa State's Bryce Dejean-Jones was named the league's newcomer of the week.

The 19th-ranked Sooners travel to Omaha, Neb., for their first road game of the season Wednesday against Creighton. The 7 p.m. CT contest will be played at the 18,320-seat CenturyLink Center and will be televised by FOX Sports 1.
