Kansas guard Travis Releford was selected Big 12 player of the week Monday after setting career-highs in points with 16 against Kansas State last Wednesday and 28 at Oklahoma on Saturday.
It is the first career honor for Releford and the fourth time a KU player has been chosen this season. Thomas Robinson won the award three times, on Nov. 28, Dec. 12 and Jan. 2.
Releford also had a double-double in the 67-49 win over the Wildcats, finishing with 11 rebounds. He then matched his career-high point total in the first half of the 72-61 win over the Sooners before finishing with 28 points.
He is averaging 10.1 points this season and has recorded double figures in three straight games. KU plays at Texas Tech on Wednesday.
