logo_iowa_state_cyclonesAMES, Iowa – Iowa State junior Deonte Burton has been named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week following his performance in the Cyclones’ win at nationally-ranked Cincinnati last Tuesday.

Burton, a Milwaukee, Wisconsin, native, scored 12 points in 16 minutes against the Bearcats. The Marquette transfer hit 5-of-6 field goals, including his only 3-point attempt, and had an assist on a nifty bounce pass in transition that resulted in a layup for Monté Morris.

He also had one rebound while posting his 17th career double-figure scoring effort.

Burton is averaging 9.5 points and shooting 61.5 percent from the field in two games since becoming eligible.
