Following a pair of sensational showings against Baylor and Iowa State, Texas Longhorns shooting guard Jase Febres has been honored as the Big 12 Player of the Week, the league announced on Monday.

The first of Febres’ two notable outings came last Wednesday when the sophomore totaled 23 points behind a 7-of-14 shooting performance from the perimeter, though the Longhorns did allow Baylor to storm back from a 19-point deficit to win in overtime, 84-83.

To cap the week, Febres put forth his best performance yet as a Longhorn.

As the headliner of the Longhorns 86-69 blowout win over Iowa State on Saturday, Febres recorded a career-high 26 points behind a career-best shooting effort, as he converted 8-of-10 three-point attempts, marking the most made threes by any Longhorn since A.J. Abrams in 2009.

Collectively, Febres averaged 24.5 points per game last week, shot 65.4 percent (17-of-26) from the field and 63 percent (15-24) from three. Febres also totaled eight rebounds and three assists.
