Oklahoma State point guard Anthony Hickey was honored as Big 12 Newcomer of the Week for his efforts in wins over No. 25 Texas and No. 8 Kansas last week, it was announced today.
Hickey scored 15 points to play a central role in Oklahoma State's win over the Longhorns in Austin last Wednesday, then came back to score 15 more points in the Cowboys' win over the Jayhawks in Stillwater Saturday. Hickey added four steals against Texas and two steals against Kansas. In the two games combined, he drained five of his nine three-point attempts (.556 pct.)
It's the second time Hickey has earned this recognition, as he was honored after leading OSU to a win over Memphis earlier in the season.
On the year, Hickey averages 9.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and a team-best 3.4 assists per game. He ranks second in the Big 12 and 22nd nationally with 2.13 steals per game.
Hickey and the Cowboys take on Baylor tonight at 6 p.m. CT on ESPNU.
