The following is a press release from Iowa State Athletics Communications:
AMES, Iowa – Iowa State guard Izaiah Brockington has been named Big 12 Co-Player of the Week, sharing the honor with Kansas’ Ochai Agbaji. It is Brockington’s fifth honor of the season, including his third player of the week accolade.
Brockington averaged 21.0 points last week while leading the Cyclones to a 2-0 record with wins on the road at TCU and at home against Oklahoma. He also averaged 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.5 assists while shooting 53.1 percent from the field and hitting 4-of-6 three-pointers.
The senior guard started the week with 20 points and seven boards in the win against the Horned Frogs, ISU’s first in Fort Worth since 2016. He then scored 22 points on 10-of-13 field goal shooting against the Sooners, including 2-for-2 behind the arc. Six of his 22 points came during a key 15-0 run that broke the game open in the second half. Brockington has scored 20 points in three consecutive games.
Texas Tech’s Bryson Williams was named the conference newcomer of the week.
