Oscar Tshiebwe is getting recognition after his breakout game in the Backyard Brawl on Saturday.
The freshman forward has been named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week for Nov. 18 after he scored 20 points and grabbed 17 rebounds at Pitt. This was Tshiebwe’s first career double-double, and he became just the fourth freshman to put up such a stat line.
Tshiebwe’s performance helped lift the Mountaineers to 2-0 on the season. The victory was also the Mountaineers’ fourth straight victory over the rival Panthers.
WVU returns to the court tonight at home against Northern Colorado. The action tips off at 7 p.m., and will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet. WVI will also be at the contest, so be sure to follow us on all digital platforms to not miss a moment.
