Jordan Clarkson was named SEC's Player of the Week
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 19:11:20 GMT — Missouri junior guard Jordan Clarkson was named the SEC's Player of the Week on Monday after averaging 23.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.0 steals in wins against West Virginia (80-71) and No. 17 UCLA (80-71).
Clarkson has scored 20 or more points in five consecutive games, the most by a Mizzou player since Thomas Gardner in 2005-06.
He dished out a season-high six assists in Saturday's win over the 17th-ranked Bruins and currently leads the SEC in scoring at 20.2 points per contest. In fact Clarkson and fellow junior guard, Jabari Brown, (19.4 ppg) are the top scoring tandem in the SEC this year.
The San Antonio, Texas, native was also named Player of the Week on Nov. 18 after helping Mizzou to wins over Southern Illinois and Hawaii. Clarkson scored a career high 31 points in that win over SIU.
The two wins last week pushed Missouri to 9-0 on the year, the second time the Tigers have been 9-0 under the direction of Head Coach Frank Haith. \
