 Burton scored 12 points in 16 minutes in last week’s road win over Cincinnati. 

 The Milwaukee native was 5 of 6 from the field and hit a key 3-pointer.

 Below, find the full release from the Big 12 regarding Burton’s honor and more: 

Hield, Burton Capture Final Weekly Honors Of 2015

Irving, Texas – Big non-conference wins have rewarded Buddy Hield (Oklahoma) and Deonte Burton (Iowa State) with the final Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Player and Newcomer of the Week for the 2015 calendar year. Hield is honored for the second time this season, while Burton earns accolades for the first time.

PHILLIPS 66 BIG 12 PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Buddy Hield, Oklahoma, G, 6-4, 214, Sr., Freeport, Bahamas/Sunrise Christian Academy [Kan.]

Hield was named MVP of the Diamond Head Classic as the Sooners won three games in route to the title. The senior guard averaged 28.7 points and 6.7 rebounds, combining for a total of 86 points to set a new tournament scoring record. He set a career-high with 34 points in Friday’s championship game versus Harvard, his fourth 30-point outing of the year. Hield shot 60.5 percent (26-of-43) over the three games, including 59.1 percent (13-of-22) from 3-point range, while making 21-of-22 (.955) from the free throw line.  He has scored 25 or more points in five straight contests, the first Sooner to accomplish the feat since 1994-95 (Ryan Minor).
