Big 12 Conference Announces Phillips 66 Men's Basketball Players Of The Week

Jan. 27, 2003

DALLAS - Colorado senior Stephane Pelle came up big in Colorado's 60-59 win against defending Big 12 champion Kansas last week. The forward scored 27 points and made the game winning shot and is the Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week. Oklahoma State junior Tony Allen has been a key on the Cowboys' 14-game winning streak. Allen averaged 19 points in two road wins and is the Phillips 66 Big 12 Rookie of the Week. Both honors are chosen by a media panel.

Pelle's 27 points against Kansas were a career high for the senior from Yaounde, Cameroon. The forward was 10-for-16 from the field for the game and also went 7-for-8 from the free throw line against the Jayhawks. Pelle's final basket was the game-winner with 25.3 seconds remaining. Colorado's win against Kansas snapped KU's Big 12 record 23-game conference winning streak. It was also CU's first win versus Kansas since the 1991 season. Pelle is averaging 11.2 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.

Allen opened the week scoring 17 points in the 67-64 win at Baylor. The Chicago, Ill., guard made a key traditional three-point play in the overtime period to help seal the win for OSU. Additionally he had four steals and six rebounds against the Bears. In the 79-70 win at Texas Tech last Sunday Allen scored eight of OSU's final 12 points down the stretch. He scored 21 points for the game and had five steals and five assists against the Red Raiders. Allen wins Phillips 66 Big 12 Rookie of the Week honors for the second time this season. He also was named the conference rookie of the week Jan. 13. Allen won the honor in a split vote over Oklahoma freshman Kevin Bookout, Texas A&M freshman Antoine Wright, and Iowa State junior Jackson Vroman.
