Tshiebwe named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week for fourth time

WVU Men's Basketball

For the fourth time this season, WVU freshman forward Oscar Tshiebwe has earned the weekly newcomer award from the Big 12 Conference.

Tshiebwe averaged a double-double in a 2-0 week for West Virginia. He recorded his 10th double-double of the season with 16 points and 12 rebounds in a 76-64 win over No. 4 Baylor.

Earlier in the week, he nearly had a double-double with 11 points and nine rebounds in the win at Iowa State. Tshiebewe shot 50 percent from the field and 13-of-14 (92.9 percent) from the free throw line. He is second in the Big 12 with 9.3 rebounds per game and tied for first with 4.1 offensive rebounds a game.

Tshiebwe has earned the newcomer accolade more than any other player in the Big 12 this season, but this is his first honor since Jan. 6. Between Tshiebwe and freshman guard Miles McBride, Mountaineers newcomers have earned the award six times since Nov. 18:
