Senior forward Connell Crossland has become the first TCU player in league history to win a weekly men’s basketball honor. Crossland has been named Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week by averaging a double-double for the week: 10.5 points and 12.0 rebounds per game and shot 50.0 percent (6-of-12) from the field.
A native of St. Louis, Mo., Crossland opened the week with 8 points and a career-best 15 rebounds in a 63-55 win over No. 5 Kansas, which was the team’s first Big 12 victory. He then scored a career-high 13 points in the Horned Frogs’ home loss to West Virginia.
TCU continues its Big 12 schedule Monday night at Oklahoma in a 6 p.m. matchup.
