TCU’s Emanuel Miller is Big 12 Men’s Basketball Player of Week

Big 12 Men's Basketball Tournament Trophy.

TCU forward Emanuel Miller was named the Big 12 Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for the seventh week of the 2022-23 season.

Oklahoma guard Grant Sherfield and Kansas State forward Nae’Qwan Tomlin were named Big 12 Co-Newcomer of the Week.

Sherfield picked up his second award of the season. Miller and Tomlin are first-time honorees.

Miller helped the Horned Frogs win their eight straight game last week, as he scored 21 points, grabbed seven rebounds, along with steals and a blocked shot in their 75-71 win over Utah. The points were a single-game high for Miller’s TCU career.

Sherfield helped the Sooners beat the Florida Gators, 62-52, in the Jumpman Invitational last week. In the 62-53 OU win, Sherfield had 22 points (15 in the second half), with four 3-pointers. It was his fifth 20-point game of the season and he remains the Big 12’s 3-point shooting leader by percentage.

Tomlin had a career-high 26 points in the Wildcats’ 73-65 win over Radford last week. He made 11 shots (four of which were dunks). He tied a season-high with nine rebounds and blocked two shots. He has averaged 16.4 points in his last five games going into Big 12 play this weekend.
