Crockett named to All-Big 12 Third Team

A day after leading the Red Raiders to a thrilling 59-53 victory over the Longhorns, behind 22 points and 10 rebounds, senior forward Jaye Crockett was selected to the All-Big 12 Conference Third Team.

The selection was made by the league coaches and announced Sunday afternoon.

The honor caps one of the more prolific careers in Texas Tech history. Crockett is the fifth player in school history to record 1,000 points (1,212), 600 rebounds (670), 100 assists (111), and 100 steals (106) in a career.

It is the first time since 2008 that a Red Raider has been selected on one of the all-conference teams. Martin Zeno landed second team honors that year.

For the season, Crockett averaged 13.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. He ranks 14th in the league in scoring, 13th in rebounding and second in field goal percentage at 52.1 percent.
