AMES – Iowa State senior point guard Monté Morris has been named the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week after recording a triple-double against The Citadel Sunday afternoon. Kansas freshman Josh Jackson was named the newcomer of the week.

Morris, a Flint, Michigan native, recorded the fifth triple in ISU history and the 15th in the Big 12 record books in the win over The Citadel. Morris had 17 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and zero turnovers in 22 minutes versus the Bulldogs. It was the fifth time nationally since 2010-11 that a triple-double included 10 assists and no miscues.

For the week, Morris averaged 17.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists in a pair of Cyclone victories last week.

This is the third player award for Morris, who was picked as the Big 12 Preseason Player of the Year.
