WACO, Texas — The Big 12 announced Baylor’s Te’a Cooper as Big 12 Player of the Week Monday after her performance against Houston Baptist Thursday.

The graduate transfer from South Carolina scored all 23 of her points in the first half vs. Houston Baptist Thursday while adding a career high 10 assists, and she matched a career high with four steals.

Cooper became the first Lady Bear to have 20 points and 10 assists in a game since Alexis Jones had 24 and 10, respectively, vs. No. 20 Oklahoma Jan. 29, 2017.

Cooper was 8-11 from the floor and didn’t commit a turnover to help Baylor to 3-0 in its 112-42 win over the Huskies.

NaLyssa Smith was the last Baylor player to earn Big 12 Player of the Week when she shared the honor Nov. 12, 2018.
