Crockett Earns Big 12 Player of the Week

Junior Jaye Crockett has led the Red Raiders in scoring all season long, averaging 16.2 points per game and after yet another double-double performance, he has added a new accolade to his career.

Coming off the bench and providing a spark has become Red Raider junior forward Jaye Crockett's specialty, especially in 2012.

The Clovis, New Mexico native averaged just 8.8 points per game in his sophomore campaign, which ranked third on the team, but has doubled that output this season averaging 16.2 points per game making him the nation's No. 1 sixth man.

Following his fifth double-double of the season against North Carolina A&T, scoring 20 points and grabbing 14 rebounds, a career-high, Crockett has a new first in his career – Big 12 Conference Player of the Week honors.

On Monday, the Big 12 announced Crockett as the final Big 12 Player of the Week recipient for the 2012 season following his solid performance against North Carolina A&T.

The 20-point performance marked the fourth of the season and his career alike, and has now scored in double-digits 28 times in his career and nine times this season.

Crockett has now scored in double figures in nine consecutive games, also extending his streak of consecutive games scored in to 23, trailing just sophomore Jordan Tolbert, with 41.

Crockett ranks third in the Big 12 in scoring and first in rebounding averaging 9.4 per game this season.

The junior will try and continue his scoring and double-digit performance streak on Monday as the Red Raiders (6-4) take on the Rattlers (4-8) in their final non-conference game of the season at noon inside the United Spirit Arena.
