Kansas forward Mario Little was selected as co-Big 12 rookie of the week, the conference announced Monday.

Little, a junior from Chicago, averaged 12.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and made 10 of his 15 field-goal attempts (66.7 percent) in KU's wins over Baylor and Oklahoma State last week. He shared the rookie of the week award with Missouri's Zaire Taylor.

Little had 12 points and three rebounds while playing just 13 minutes in the Jayhawks' 75-65 victory over Baylor on Monday. He added 13 points on 6-for-8 shooting with five rebounds in KU's 78-67 triumph over Oklahoma State on Saturday.

It is the fourth time this season a Jayhawk has picked up the Big 12 rookie of the week honor. Tyshawn Taylor won the award on Dec. 8, Dec. 22 and Jan. 19.
