Vroman Big 12's Player of the Week

AMES, Iowa--Iowa State senior Jackson Vroman averaged 18 points, 10 rebounds and shot 64 percent in two games last week, earning Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week honors. It marks the first time a Cyclone has won the Big 12 Player of the Week award since Tyray Pearson won the honor on Jan. 14, 2002.

In a loss at Kansas State, Jackson Vroman tallied his team-leading fifth double-double of the season with 16 points and 11 rebounds. The Bountiful, Utah, native also had two steals vs. the Wildcats.

Vroman followed that outing with a monster game in the 78-77 win against No. 11 Texas, scoring 20 points and grabbing nine rebounds. The victory was ISU's second over a Top 25 team this season as the Cyclones defeated Kansas 68-61 on Jan. 31.

Against UT, Vroman also tallied a game-high three steals and was 9-for-12 (75.0 percent) from the floor to mark his sixth game this season where he shot 75 percent from the field or above with at least eight shot attempts. Vroman did all of his damage against the Longhorns before fouling out with 4:49 left in the game.

Vroman is the Big 12 leader in rebounding, averaging 10.0 rpg and he is trying to become the first Cyclone to average a double-double throughout an entire season since 1979.
