Kansas University freshman guard Andrew Wiggins has been chosen as the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week.

Th 6-foot-8 freshman is recognized for the second time as top rookie, and his award marks the eighth weekly honor for KU in 2013-14.

Wiggins had two double-figure scoring efforts as the Jayhawks extended their win streak to six games with victories over Baylor, 78-68, and at TCU, 91-69. 

The freshman guard averaged 22.0 points and 6.0 rebounds while shooting 55.0 percent. He opened the week with 17 points against the Bears, including 11 points in the second half. Wiggins was then the main catalyst versus the Frogs, with a career-best 27 points, including 19 in the first half. He also made 19-of-22 (.864) from the free throw line on the week and leads all Big 12 freshmen in scoring with 15.8 points per game.
