Buddy Hield has been named the Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week following his performances against Memphis and McNeese State. It marks Hield’s third career conference honor.
A 6-4, 214-pounder from the Bahamas, Hield averaged 27.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 blocks in an 84-78 win at Memphis on Tuesday and an 85-56 victory vs. McNeese State on Friday. He shot a combined 56.3 percent (18 of 32) from the field, including 60.0 percent (9 of 15) from 3-point range.
Hield scored a game-high 30 points (9 of 19 FG, 4 of 8 3FG) and added eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocked shots in a road win at Memphis. The senior sank four free throws in the game’s final 14 seconds to seal the victory. It marked his third career 30-point game and the 30 points were just one shy of tying his career high.
Hield followed up with a 24-point outing in OU’s home opener against McNeese State. In 23 minutes of action, he shot 69.2 percent (9 of 13) from the field, including 71.4 percent (5 of 7) from downtown. He also added three rebounds, one assist and one steal.
Chris Olivier of Oklahoma State was named the league's newcomer of the week.
