Ayoka Lee’s Jersey On Its Way to Basketball Hall of Fame

Ayoka Lee’s jersey and a basketball are on their way to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame after her record-setting performance against Oklahoma.

Lee scored 61 points in the contest, setting a Division I single-game scoring mark and broke the Big 12 single-game scoring mark by 11 points.

Kansas State’s assistant sports information director, Randy Peterson, tweeted out a photo of package being prepped for the trip to Springfield, Massachusetts.

 

Along with her 61 points, Lee made a Big 12 record 23 field goals and is now the only player in Division I to shoot better than 75 percent from the field on 26-or-more attempts since 2009-10.

Already on Monday Lee was named the Big 12 Women’s Basketball Player of the Week and the ESPN Women’s Basketball Player of the Week. The Wildcats’ victory over Oklahoma also put them back in the AP Women’s Top 25 for the second time in three weeks.

Lee was named the Big 12’s Player of the Week for the fourth time this season. It is the second time she has claimed the aware in the past four weeks.

After Sunday’s performance Lee is now averaging 25.5 and 10.9 rebounds per game. He has a Big 12-high 66 blocked shots and also has a team-high 27 steals.

Lee and the Wildcats will be in action on Wednesday night when they travel to Texas.
