The voters couldn’t quite make up their minds this week, so Big 12 Player of the Week honors were split between Oklahoma State senior forward Le’Bryan Nash and Kansas junior forward Perry Ellis.

Ellis averaged 16.0 points and 7.5 rebounds as the Jayhawks won at Texas Tech and defeated Baylor in Allen Fieldhouse this past week. 

The junior from Wichita shot 52.2 percent from the field and 87.5 percent from the free-throw line. 

Eliis opened the week by just missing a double-double, with 14 points and nine boards at Tech. He then tied for the game-high in scoring with 18 points against the Bears.

OSU’s Nash averaged 20.5 points and 6.0 rebounds as the Cowboys won at Baylor and lost at TCU.

— A previous version of this story incorrectly stated OSU won at TCU.
