Middleton, Selby Earn Menís Basketball Weekly Accolades
December 20, 2010

Khris Middleton (Texas A&M) and Josh Selby (Kansas) have been selected the Phillips 66 Big 12 Player and Rookie of the Week, respectively, for games of December 13-19 in voting by a panel of media covering the Conference.  It is the first weekly accolade for both student-athletes. 

Khris Middleton, Texas A&M, So., F, 6-7, 215, South Charleston, S.C./Porter-Gaud

Middleton scored a career-high 31 points to lead No. 25 Texas A&M to a 71-62 overtime victory over Arkansas.  The sophomore forward connected on 10-of-16 (.625) shots from the field and 9-of-12 (.750) from the free throw line.  With the Aggies down six points in the second half, he scored 11 of the team's final 12 points of regulation to force overtime.  The 31 points were the most by an A&M player in nearly four years (Acie Law, 33 points at Texas in 2007), as Middleton became only the second player this season to score more than 20 points against the Razorbacks defense.  He is just one of four players all-time at Texas A&M to be named Big 12 Player of the Week.

Josh Selby, Kansas, Fr., G, 6-2, 183, Baltimore, Md./Lake Clifton

Selby made his collegiate debut a memorable one in the Jayhawks' 70-68 victory over USC.  The freshman guard finished with 21 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer with 26 seconds remaining to give KU a 69-68 lead it would not relinquish.  He also pulled down a key defensive rebound with 43 seconds left, just prior to his 3-pointer.  The Baltimore-native finished the game 5-of-11 (.455) from the field, including 5-of-8 (.625) from beyond the arc.  He was also 6-of-7 (.857) from the free throw line with five rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes of action.
