AMES, Iowa – Iowa State senior guard Monté Morris has been named Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week after helping Iowa State to a pair of wins at Texas Tech and at home against Baylor.

Morris, a Flint, Michigan, native, averaged 20.0 points and 6.5 assists as the Cyclones extended their win streak to five games. He committed just two turnovers in 79 minutes of action and converted 15-of-27 (.556) shots from the field, including 5-of-8 from 3-point range.

Morris has been recognized twice this season and four times in his career. Kansas’ Josh Jackson was named newcomer of the week.
