Jordan Hamilton Named Big 12 Player Of The Week (Again)

Sophomore Jordan HamiltonFor the second-straight week, Texas sophomore phenom Jordan Hamilton has been named the Phillips 66 Big 12 Conference Player of the Week.

Hamilton averaged 26.5 points and 7.5 rebounds against two Top 15 teams and was named to the all-tournament team of the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer in New York.

The 6′-7″, 220-pound swingman from Compton, Calif., shot a scorching .583 from behind the three-point line in Texas’ overtime win over Illinois and close loss to Pitt.

On the season, Hamilton is shooting .485 from the field and .423 from three-point range, and he leads the team in scoring with just under 25 points per game.

He has emerged as a team leader after coming off the bench last year as a freshman and averaging 10 points per game. He was the nation’s No. 8 ranked recruit two years ago.

No. 20/21 Texas (3-1) returns to the court when it hosts Sam Houston State on Tuesday, Nov. 23. Tip is set for 7 p.m.
