Kansas senior Lagerald Vick earned Big 12 player of the week honors on Monday after recording career-highs of 32 and 33 points in KU victories over Vermont and Louisiana last week.

It marked the second consecutive week that a Jayhawk had taken home the honor, with redshirt junior Dedric Lawson earning the nod last week after a strong showing in KU's season-opening victory against Michigan State.

Vick made 15 of 20 3-point attempts in the two KU victories last week, including a school-record 8-of-8 from 3-point range in the win over Vermont.

For the week, Vick averaged 32.5 points and shot 23-for-32 (71.8 percent) from the field, while also averaging six rebounds per game.

Vick's 15 3-pointers in the two contests set a Kansas record for most 3-pointers made in consecutive games.

Great job, Vick! Keep your head cool, stay humble but hungry, you'll find ways to shoot more 3s!

Jess, I believe it's Big12, not national.

Marcia, I think Jeff is saying what I said in several places-that Vick s/b the National Player of the Week!

I hate to think what the outcome would have been the last two games if Vick didn’t perform as he did! Very happy for him. Hope his senior year is everything he wants it to be and more.
