Kansas State Wildcats
Big 12 (20-11, 10-6)
Big Wins: 1/12 at Oklahoma (84-82), 1/19 Texas A&M (75-54), 1/30 Kansas (84-75)
Kansas State’s Michael Beasley headlines the Big 12’s All-January Team. You’re not surprised by that, are you?!
Guard – Martin Zeno – Texas Tech – SR
16.0ppg, 4.5rpg, 2.9apg
Best game – Jan 23rd- Missouri – 33 points, five rebounds, five assists, four steals, three blocks, 19-24 free throws
Zeno had a killer January, pouring in at least 25 points in three games and averaged a very solid 20 points, four boards and three assists for the month. Now hopefully he doesn’t decide to resign on his team midway through the season!
