Averaging 12 points over the course of the week, Reynolds helped Oklahoma secure wins over major conference opponents. In addition to the scoring output, the guard impacted the game in numerous other ways. Sharing the ball, Reynolds compiled three assists per game while also pulling down 4.5 rebounds in the two contests. As a senior, the effort marks the first Newcomer of the Year award for Reynolds and the Sooners. Yet, it’s the second weekly honor of the year for the program.
Standing 11-1 on the year, the Sooners hold a share of first place in the Big 12 Conference. Stepping into conference play, the university hopes to turn waves into ripples as they prepare for the Kansas.
