Kansas Center Jeff Withey Named Big 12 Player of the Week

Jeff Withey was named Big 12 player of the week today after a week where he averaged 17.5 points and 10.0 rebounds in two Jayhawk victories. The senior center opened with his third straight double-double, tallying 17 points and a season-high 14 boards in a double-overtime win at Oklahoma State. Withey then contributed 18 points and six rebounds against TCU. He shot 52.6 percent (10-of-19) in two outings and connected on 83.3 percent (15-of-18) of his attempts from the free throw line. Withey also had seven blocked shots last week, increasing his Big 12-leading career total to 272.

This marks the third week this season where Withey has earned player of the week honors in the Big 12 and the second consecutive week at that. Withey's trails only Kansas State's Rodney McGruder who has been named the Big 12 player of the week four times over the course of the season. A Jayhawk has been awarded the honor five times this year with Travis Releford and Ben McLemore being the other two Kansas players to receive the mention.
