Junior forward Amath M’Baye was named Big 12 Rookie of the Week after averaging 10.7 points and five rebounds through last weekend’s three games to help lead Oklahoma basketball to a 2-1 performance during the Old Spice Classic in Orlando. During the final outing of the weekend, M’Baye finished with a game-high 19 points and six rebounds to help lead OU to seven-point win over West Virginia.
The Wyoming transfer is tied for second on the team in shooting (10.2 points per game) and is also the second-best rebounder for the Sooners, averaging 6.6 boards per game. This is M’Baye’s and the Sooners’ first conference award of the 2012 season.
