Senior guards Pierre Jackson (Baylor) and Will Clyburn (Iowa State) have been selected as the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men's Basketball Player and Rookie of the Week for games of January 21-27. It is Jackson's first weekly honor of the season and third overall, while Clyburn garners his second weekly recognition of the season.

PHILLIPS 66 BIG 12 PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Pierre Jackson, Baylor, G, Sr., 5-10, 180, Las Vegas, Nev./Desert Pines/College of Southern Idaho
Jackson averaged 19.0 points, 4.0 assists and 2.0 rebounds this week to lead Baylor to a 2-0 week and match the team's best Big 12 start in school history (5-1). The senior shot 50 percent from 3-point range, hitting 8-of-16 attempts and extended his streak of double-figure scoring games to 26, 10 longer than any active streak in the Big 12. Against Oklahoma State on Big Monday, he led the team with 18 points plus three assists, while contributing 20 points and five assists in only 27 minutes at TCU. Jackson is riding a 30-game streak of making at least one 3-pointer, the second-longest in Baylor history.

PHILLIPS 66 BIG 12 ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Will Clyburn, Iowa State, G, Sr., 6-7, 210, Detroit, Mich./Romulus/Marshalltown C.C./Utah
Clyburn averaged 18.0 points and 10.0 rebounds and recorded a pair of double-doubles as Iowa State split a pair of games during the week. The Detroit, Mich.-native opened the week with 12 points and 10 boards in ISU's 56-51 loss at Texas Tech, his fourth double-double of the season. He followed that game with his second straight double-double in the Cyclone's win over No. 11 Kansas State, recording 24 points and 10 rebounds. Clyburn scored 17 of his 24 points in the second half, as Iowa State won its 18th straight game at home and 10th straight Big 12 game in Hilton Coliseum. It was Clyburn's third 20-point outing of the season.
