College basketball • Former Utah Ute Will Clyburn was named the Big 12's Rookie of the Week on Monday after posting back-to-back double-doubles an honor made for some good-natured ribbing by Clyburn's teammates considering that he's 22 and at his third college.
Clyburn torched then-No. 11 Kansas State for 24 points and 10 rebounds Saturday as Iowa State held off the Wildcats 74-69 for their first win over a ranked opponent this season. It was a win the Cyclones (14-5, 4-2 Big 12) badly needed after an ugly loss at Texas Tech, and it kept them afloat in the upper half of the league ahead of Wednesday's game at Oklahoma State (13-5, 3-3).
Clyburn is averaging 14.4 points.
