    Royce White Big 12 Newcomer vs. Player of week

    I was initially really disappointed for Royce that he didn't win Big 12 Player of the Week but instead had to settle for Newcomer of the Week. I boiled down the averages for Royce's and Releford's games and it measured out better for Releford than I expected, but I admit I'm still a little disappointed for Royce. It seems to me that there better be a pretty outstanding performance to beat out a conference triple double on the road. Those are pretty damned rare in this conference.

    .................Pts....R....A..TO..Blk.Stl..Min
    Releford 22.0 7.0 1.5 1.5 0.5 1.0 32.0
    White....12.0 12.0 6.0 3.5 1.0 1.0 32.0

    Not that big of a deal, but I just thought I would ask what you guys thought of this.

    My first thought when I saw this was "duh!"

    Too bad he couldn't get something more than just newcomer of the week.

    I get it, but still disappointed that the first triple double in B12 play in 5 years didn't earn POW honors.

    I bet Releford didn't have to leave the game to yak in a trash can. I'm sure Royce will end up with POW soon enough, not a big deal.

    Why was Andrew Luck given The Maxwell Award and RGIII the Heisman? I'm sure there are different voting requirements for these, but the premise is the same. Just a way to recognize two instead of one. No biggie.

    I had similar thoughts...that said, I don't think this will be the last POW award that Royce wins this year.

    Re: Royce White Big 12 Newcomer vs. Player of week

    Has anyone ever won both in the same week, or is that not allowed?

    It's allowed...I'm pretty sure. Quite a few years back, I think they were toying with idea of calling the POW "The Durant".
