Kansas guard Tyshawn Taylor has been named the co-Big 12 player of the week, the conference announced Sunday.

Taylor shared the honor with Kansas State forward Jamar Samuels.

Taylor, a senior guard from Hoboken, N.J., averaged 24.5 points in KU's victories over Oklahoma State and Texas last week.

Taylor made 65 percent of his shots and also went 11-for-11 from the free throw line in the two games.

It was the second time this season that Taylor picked up the weekly honor and the eighth time this season that a KU player has earned the award.

Congrats Tyshawn!

Time to show the national media wrong by making a big splash in the big dance! You deserve a lot more recognition, and it will come when you bring the national hardware back to Lawrence!

You can do it, man! UConn did it last year because the most-important position on the court is PG (if you have the talent at that position). We have the talent at that position! Bring it home, Tyshawn! Go outta here with a BANG!

Wow! Shooting 65%, hitting 11/11 from the line in those two games. Compare his league play with any other point guard this semester, and try to find anyone better.

Could any of us predicted to heights that Tyshawn has attained this season, if we had been asked two or three years ago?? I don't think so!!

Now just win the last six games of this season!!

Guess EJ will just have to go out and win the conference tourney MOP if he wants to get in on the accolades the other starters have been receiving.

Wonder what Samuels did this week that made it necessary to share the award. Anyway, congrats Tyshawn!
