IRVING, Texas -- Oklahoma’s Danielle Robinson was named the Phillips 66 Big 12 Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, announced Monday by the conference office.
It was Robinson’s second player of the week honor this season and sixth in her career.
Robinson was the scoring leader in each of the Sooners’ victories last week as she averaged 25.0 points and also totaled 10 steals and eight rebounds.
The preseason All-American scored 20 points in OU’s 52-45 win against Kansas State, including six points off steals. Robinson was one of only two players to score in double figures -- her 100th such game -- as she helped her senior class match OU’s record for home wins in a career at 50.
Trailing by eight at Texas, Robinson scored six straight points to help OU close the gap entering halftime. She then added 10 of the Sooners’ first 18 second-half points as OU built a lead. With five points in overtime, Robinson totaled a season high 30 and clinched an undefeated career in Austin.
Baylor’s Odyssey Sims was the league’s freshman of the week.
No. 14 Oklahoma (13-3, 3-0 Big 12) next hosts Texas Tech (16-1, 3-0 Big 12) at the Lloyd Noble Center Wednesday, Jan. 19, at 7 p.m.
