For the third time this season Iowa State sophomore Craig Brackins has been named the Big-12 Conference player of the week. Brackins poured in 42 points and added 14 rebounds in the Cyclones’ loss at home against Kansas. His point total ties for the fourth best in Big-12 history.
Iowa State coach Greg McDermott says Brackins can score in a lot of different ways. He says they’ve used him on the block more, but he can make the inbetween shots and make three point shots.
Kansas coach Bill Self says the Jayhawks could not find a way to slow him down. Self says Brackins made five or six hard shots where he thought they had defended him well. Self says they gave Brackins too many free throws by fouling them.
For Brackins it was his fourth double-double of the season.
