Kassius Robertson named SEC player of the week

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Okay, that was a busy Monday. Let’s review:

Lost amid the commits and whatnot: Mizzou Hoops snared a pair of awards.

First, Cuonzo Martin’s team won team of the week honors from the @MarchMadness Twitter account, which is apparently a thing.

Second, after scoring 38 points on 18 FG attempts, with eight assists, seven rebounds, and a whole bunch of key free throws, Kassius Robertson was named SEC player of the week.

The weekly honor is the first for Mizzou since the midpoint of the 2013-14 season, when former guard Jordan Clarkson received the recognition on Dec. 30, 2013.

Robertson scored 16 points to tie for the team-lead in Mizzou’s first-ever win vs. Kentucky (Feb. 3). He effectively iced the game for the Tigers, shooting a perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line in the final minutes to secure the victory over the No. 21-ranked Wildcats.

On the road at Alabama (Jan. 31), Robertson secured his fifth 20-point outing out of the 10 conference games played, thus far, recording 22 points on 6-of-10 shooting overall and 4-of-8 marksmanship from deep range. In both the Alabama and Kentucky wins, Robertson led the Tigers in assists with four dimes in both contests.

This team would be nowhere near the NCAA bubble without Robertson’s contributions.
