Jayhawks guard Sherron Collins was named co-player of the week along with Oklahoma State’s James Anderson. Collins scored 22 points in each of Kansas’ victories last week, over Iowa State and Nebraska. He shot 58.6 percent from the field and 60 percent from the three-point arc.

Oklahoma freshman guard Willie Warren was named rookie of the week. He scored a game-high 27 in the Sooners 73-68 loss to Texas on Saturday.
