Mizzou senior forward Ricardo Ratliffe is the Big 12 Player of the Week after averaging 22.0 points and 7.0 rebounds per game while guiding Mizzou to a 2-0 record, including Saturday’s 89-88 win over #3 Baylor.
Ratliffe had a career day with 27 points on 11-of-14 shooting while grabbing eight rebounds. His 27 points and 11 field goals are new career-best totals. He also went 5-of-7 from the free throw line.
Ratliffe is shooting 77%, which ranks first in the nation and is on pace to break the NCAA single-season record. The Tigers will be back in action on Wednesday as they travel to Oklahoma State.
