Evans Named Big 12 Newcomer Of The Week

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma State freshman Jawun Evans was recognized as Big 12 Newcomer of the Week after a phenomenal pair of games against No. 2 Oklahoma and Texas. It's his second time to earn the designation this season.

Evans turned in a historic scoring performance in the Bedlam matchup versus Oklahoma, finishing with 42 points - the third-best scoring game in school history. It was the highest point total by a Cowboy freshman and the second-most in the Big 12 freshman record book. Only five players in the nation and just two freshmen have scored more points in a game this season and his 18 field goals were a NCAA-best.

He followed that performance by approaching a triple-double against Texas, recording 12 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. Evans averaged a league-best 27.0 points last week, shooting 50 percent from the field with 6.5 assists and 7.5 rebounds per game. He is averaging a team-best 17.6 points in conference play.
