Sean McNeil, Izaiah Brockington are Big 12 Men’s Player of the Week

NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma at West Virginia

Sean McNeil of West Virginia and Izaiah Brockington of Iowa State shared the Big 12 Men’s Player of the Week award on Monday.

In addition, Brockington was named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week award, his second newcomer award in three weeks.  

This is McNeil’s first weekly award of 2021-22. McNeil scored a game-high 23 points in the Mountaineers’ only game last week, an 82-52 win over Youngstown State. He scored all 23 points in the second half. The Mountaineers are receiving votes in the AP Top 25. The Mountaineers are also in the most recent ESPN Bracketology.

 

McNeil is the second Mountaineer to earn weekly honors this season. Guard Taz Sherman has been the Player of the Week twice this season.

Brockington earned his first Player of the Week honor and his second Newcomer of the Week honor. His Iowa State teammate, Gabe Kalscheur, did the same thing the week of Nov. 29. The Cyclones are ranked in the Top 10 in the country entering Saturday’s huge showdown with Baylor.

Brockington had 20 points and 13 rebounds in a win over Chicago State. That marked Brockington’s sixth double-double of the season. To put it in perspective, Brockington had never had a double-double in his college career before arriving at Iowa State as a transfer from Penn State.
