When Jordan Tolbert first walked on the court for Red Raider coach Billy Gillispie, you knew he was going to be special. Other people did too, because Tolbert was named Big 12 rookie of the week.


In games against CSU Bakersfield and Southeastern Louisiana Tolbert averaged 19pts and 4 rebounds. Tolbert also had a career best scoring 27 points against CSU Bakersfield.

Tolbert has scored at 20 points in four straight games, five in all.

For those who have seen him play have seen an exciting player. Get him the ball down low in the paint and he is going to score. He has definitely become the Red Raiders go to guy.

Do not be surprised to see this young man win Big12 honors several more times this year.
