Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week
Toni Young, Oklahoma State, F, Sr, Del City, Okla.
Toni Young was named tournament most valuable player after leading Oklahoma State to the Surf 'N Slam Classic title in San Diego. She recorded double-doubles in both games to move into third place on the school's all-time list with 26. Young hit seven of her 15 shots from the floor to finish with 16 points and 12 rebounds against Harvard. She also had two assists, four blocked shots and a steal. In the championship game against San Diego State, Young hit 14 of her 19 shots en route to a 30-point, 15-rebound performance. The senior forward also had two blocks and a steal. For the week she averaged 23 points and 13.5 rebounds while shooting .618 (21-of-34) from the field. OSU improved to 11-0 for the first time in program history with the wins.

Kidd Blaskowsky had one of the top freshman performances in school history, connecting on 8-of-13 three-point tries to score a career-high 26 points off the bench in the Cyclones' win over Air Force. Six of the threes came in the second half. She also had nine points behind 6-for-6 free-throw shooting against Alabama State.
