LUBBOCK, Texas — The Big 12 rewarded Jahmi’us Ramsey for his outstanding recent performances, naming the Texas Tech freshman Big 12 Newcomer of the Week on Monday.
Ramsey dropped a career high 27 points against Long Island Sunday, exploding for 19 in the second half. Against Tennessee State Thursday, Ramsey scored 13.
The 27-point outing was the most by a Red Raider freshman since Jordan Tolbert had 27 points in 2011.
The Arlington native is currently the Big 12’s leading scorer at 19.4 points per game on the season.
Ramsey is not the first Red Raider to win Newcomer of the Week this season; T.J. Holyfield won it two weeks ago.
