Thomas Robinson Of Kansas Wins Big 12 Basketball Player Of The Week

Thomas Robinson is having the sort of breakout season that everyone believed he could and hoped he would. Now the on-court results are being rewarded with his first ever Big 12 Player of the Week honor. Robinson and Kansas had a big week this last week at the EA Sports Maui Invitational, going 2-1 and nearly upsetting Duke in the process. While KU lost to both Kentucky and Duke thus far, it’s clear the Jayhawks are still quite talented despite heavy off-season losses and they can compete with anyone in the nation. Robinson is averaging 16 points and 12 rebounds this season, good for fourth and first overall in the Big 12.

From the press release, "Robinson averaged 17.0 points and 12.3 rebounds, notching a double-double in each contest for the Jayhawks. He shot 50 percent (20-of-40) from the field and connected on 11-of-17 (.647) free throws while adding four assists and two steals. Robinson tied his career-high against the Hoyas, finishing with 20 points. He also posted a career-best rebounding total with 15 versus the Blue Devils."
