Vaughan, Ontario's Andrew Wiggins has been chosen the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week.

It marks the second time this season that Wiggins has won his Conference's Rookie of the Week award, previously winning for the week of Nov. 18.

Wiggins had two double-figure scoring efforts as the Jayhawks topped Baylor and TCU over the past week. He averaged 22 points and six rebounds while shooting 55 per cent.

In 19 games with Kansas this season Wiggins has averaged 15.8 points, and six rebounds at 31.7 minutes per game. He remains one of the most highly-touted prospects for the 2014 NBA Draft, despite being only a freshman with the Jayhawks.
