MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — For the third week in row, a Mountaineer has locked up Big 12 honors. 

Sophomore guard Miles McBride has been named Big 12 Player of the Week for the second time this month after helping the Mountaineers complete a 19-point comeback to beat Texas. McBride scored 17 points and added four assists and three rebounds in that win. 

McBride also ranks in seven different statistical categories in the conference this season. 

Four Mountaineers have earned the Big 12’s top weekly honor this season. Guard Sean McNeil did it last week after dropping a career high in a victory at Texas Tech, while Derek Culver won the first player of the week award of the season after a stellar display at the Bad Boy Mowers Crossover Classic. 

McBride shares this award with Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham.
