Oklahoma State’s Brittney Martin earned her fifth Big 12 Women’s Basketball Player of the Week award of the season today in a vote of a media panel that covers the Conference. Martin picked up her 13th career honor and eighth as player of the week.

The Syracuse, Utah native averaged 25 points and 12.5 rebounds in Oklahoma State’s two victories last week while extending her double-double streak to eight-straight games.

In the Cowgirls’ midweek win at No. 20 Oklahoma, Martin scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to propel OSU to its first win in Norman since 1998 and its third over a Top 25 opponent this season. In the process, she became the fourth player in program history to surpass 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds for her career. Martin also added two assists, three steals and a block against the Sooners. 

The senior guard recorded her second 30-point outing of the year on Sunday against Texas Tech, finishing with a game-high 32 points to go with a game-best 15 rebounds. Martin connected on 11 of her 19 shots from the floor and made all 10 of her free-throw attempts against the Lady Raiders.

For the week she hit .576 (19-33) from the floor and .923 (12-13) from the free-throw line.
