Kansas State’s Ayoka Lee Claims 3 More Player of Week Awards

Ayoka Lee of Kansas State won three more Player of the Week awards on Tuesday after her huge performance against Baylor on Sunday.

Lee was named the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Ann Meyers Drysdale Women’s National Player of the Week, Jersey Mike’s Naismith Trophy Player of the Week and the HerHoopStats Power 6 Player of the Week.

Lee was named the Big 12 Women’s Player of the Week for the third time this season on Monday. Lee was named the Big 12 Player of the Week on Nov. 15 after setting a Kansas State record with 43 points in the season opener. She was also named Big 12 Player of the Week on Dec. 20.


Lee had 32 points — with 28 of those points coming in the second half — along with 10 rebounds, three steals, two assists and two blocks to lead the Wildcats past then-No. 10 Baylor, 68-59. The Wildcats had not beaten Baylor since 2004 and snapped a 36-game losing streak.

Lee actually outscored the Bears in the third quarter by herself, 19-17.

For the season, Lee leads the Big 12 in scoring with 24.4 points per game, along with field goal percentage (.578), 30-point games (5), blocks (50) and blocks per game (3.9).
