AMES – Iowa State guard Gabe Kalscheur has been named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week after hitting six 3-pointers to lead the Cyclones to a 79-70 win over Texas on Saturday. It is Kalscheur’s third honor of the season.

Earlier in the week, Kalscheur was 4-for-9 from 3-point range and finished with 14 points in a one-point loss at Kansas.
KU’s Ochai Agbaji was named Big 12 Player of the Week.
