OSU's Smart Big 12 Rookie Of The Week For Fourth Time
Marcus Smart continued his impressive all-around play by averaging 19 points in two Cowboy wins, while totaling 10 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two blocked shots. The freshman shot 55 percent from the floor, including 4-of-6 (.667) from beyond the arc, while making 12-of-15 (.800) from the line.
His top performance came against in-state rival Oklahoma, as he led the Cowboys to a second-half comeback and finished with a career-high 28 points. One of his steals versus the Sooners came on a block of a 3-point attempt with less than 20 seconds remaining that resulted in a held ball and possession to OSU.
