Fizer Named Big 12 Rookie of Year
AMES, Iowa (AP) _ The honors just keep coming for Iowa State basketball player Marcus Fizer.
Fizer was named to the Big 12 all-freshman team chosen by a panel of sports writers and also was selected as the league’s rookie of the week for the second straight week and fourth time this season.
The 6-foot-8, 240-pounder leads Iowa State in scoring with a 15-point average, is second in rebounding (6.9) and leads the team in steals with 32. He also received honorable mention in the all-conference voting.
Also named to the all-freshman team were Luke Axtell and Chris Mihm of Texas, Ryan Humphrey of Oklahoma and Eric Chenowith of Kansas.
Fizer earned the rookie of the week honor after scoring 14 points in each of the Cyclones’ last two games, losses to Baylor and Nebraska. He added seven rebounds against Baylor and grabbed nine against Nebraska.
