Kane gains second straight Big 12 Player of the Week

AMES – Iowa State senior DeAndre Kane has been named the Big 12 Conference’s men’s basketball Player of the Week for the second week in a row.

Kane helped Iowa State match a school record with its 13-0 start to the season as the Cyclones defeated Northern Illinois and Texas Tech last week. The senior guard narrowly missed a triple-double with 16 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds against Northern Illinois, then followed that up with 15 points, six assists and two boards in the Big 12 opener in Lubbock, Texas.

Kane has been honored with four weekly Big 12 awards this season, including two Newcomer of the Week awards.
