Iowa State's Tim Barnes averaged 15 points in two games and was named the Phillips 66 Big 12 Rookie of the Week. The 6'0 junior guard recorded a career-high 23 points in the win against Kansas State. Both honors are chosen by a media panel.
Wilson opened the week with his first-ever double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds in CU's 94-87 loss at No. 6 Kansas. The Broomfield, Colo., guard/forward was 9-for-15 from the field at KU. Wilson scored a career- and game-high 26 points (6-for-10 three pointers) in CU's 89-68 home win over Missouri. He also tied his personal-best in steals with four and his six three-pointers against Mizzou were a season-high.
For the week, he averaged 23.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 4.5 three-point field goals. Wilson is the CU all-time leader in minutes played without fouling out (2,052). Wilson won the honor in a split vote over Oklahoma senior Hollis Price and Texas sophomore T.J. Ford.
Wilson is second in team scoring (13.9) and the team leader in 3-pointers made (70) for the Buffaloes (16-9, 6-6 Big 12). He is the third Colorado player this season to garner Big 12 weekly honors (Stephane Pelle, Jan. 27) and David Harrison, Nov. 25).
