Mizzou's Jordan Clarkson named SEC Player of the Week
From the University of Missouri
Jordan Clarkson was named the Southeastern Conference Player of the
Week in men's basketball on Monday. The junior guard from San Antonio
averaged 22 points and 3.5 assists for the Tigers in
wins against Southern Illinois (72-59) and Hawaii (92-80).
It's Clarkson's first Player
of the Week honor at Missouri and he becomes the second Tiger honored by
the conference office in as many weeks. Freshman Wes Clark was named
the SEC Freshman of the Week last Monday.
Clarkson was fantastic in
wins against the Salukis and Rainbow Warriors. He opened the week with a
career high 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting vs. Southern Illinois, while
also dishing a team-leading five assists.
He then scored 13 points and
dished two assists in 23 minutes against Hawaii. Clarkson played just
three first-half minutes on Saturday at Kansas City's Sprint Center due
to foul trouble, but responded well in the
second half, scoring nine of his 13 points in the final period.
While Monday's honor was
Clarkson's first at Missouri he was named the Conference USA Player of
the Week on Jan. 30, 2012, while at Tulsa.
