Jawun Evans’ 22-15 Game as Rare as It Gets In Big 12 Play

Published

on

Jawun Evans had 22 points, 15 assists and 4 rebounds last Saturday night against Kansas. This is just the fourth (!) time in Big 12 history this has happened and just the eighth time since CBB Reference started keeping this stuff back in 2010. Here is a look at all the instances in the last eight years.

Player Date Team Opponent PTS AST
Chaz Williams 2013 Massachusetts Brigham Young 32 15
Pierre Jackson 2013 Baylor Arizona State 26 16
Kay Felder 2016 Oakland Detroit Mercy 26 16
Johnathan Loyd 2013 Oregon Mississippi 23 15
Joey Rodriguez 2010 VCU UNC-Greensboro 22 17
Dee Davis 2012 Xavier Fairleigh Dickinson 22 15
Jawun Evans 2017 Oklahoma State Kansas 22 15
Pierre Jackson 2012 Baylor Missouri 20 15

How about Pierre Jackson dropping two of the three others in Big 12 history? I can’t seem to find who had the fourth, but either way this was a pretty amazing feat by Evans that might have gone overlooked because a.) Frank Mason was insane and b.) OSU lost.

The 15 assists by No. 1 were also tied for the fifth-most in Big 12 history in a single game and tied for third-most in OSU history in a single game. Doug Gottlieb had 18 assists agains Florida Atlantic in 1998 and 16 against North Texas in 1999.

Evans, who made the All-Big 12 First Team, ended the regular season as just one of four power conference guards to average 16 points and 6 assists per game. Additionally, he’s the only player in the country in the last eight years to average at least a 16-3-6 line while playing fewer than 30 minutes per game.

Did you guys realize he’s not even averaging 29 minutes a game? I didn’t. This means his per-40 numbers are out of this world. Look at these!

“(I) try to do everything I can for my teammates to make their life easier,” said Evans on Monday. “I’m having a lot of fun. This year coach has put me in the right position. I have the greatest teammates anybody can ever ask for. It’s been a fun year.”

And it’s still not over.
