IRVING, Texas - For the second time this season, Oklahoma State's Andrea Riley was named the Phillips 66 Big 12 Women's Basketball Player of the Week by a media voting panel for games played from Nov. 23-29.
In OSU's two games at the Junkanoo Jam on Grand Bahama Island this past weekend, Riley averaged 30.5 points, 7.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds to earn all-tournament recognition.
Riley scored 17 points, had six assists and four rebounds in OSU's win over Marist on Friday. The Dallas, Texas native played all 50 minutes in the Cowgirls' double overtime loss against No. 25 Michigan State in the championship game on Saturday night.
Against the Spartans, Riley notched her second career 40-point game, finishing with 44 points and eight assists. Her point total was one off her career high and broke the previous single-game tournament record of 41 set by Kansas State's Kendra Wecker. Riley's 61 points in the two games also surpassed Wecker's total of 56 for a tournament-best tally.
The distinction marks the ninth time during Riley's career she has received a weekly league honor.
