OU junior forward Madi Williams was named Big 12 Player of the Week Monday after her record-breaking 45-point performance against West Virginia Sunday.

Williams was 17-of-30 from the floor against the Mountaineers, making three 3-pointers and 8-of-9 free throws while providing the majority of OU's offense in a 90-72 loss.

Williams scored the most points by a Division I women's player this season, and she also broke the OU single-game points record of 43 formerly held by Sooner legend and current assistant coach Courtney Paris.

The Sooner forward is now averaging a team high 25.8 points per game along with 4.2 rebounds and two assists per game. The Sooners’ next game is at Texas Tech on Wednesday, Jan. 6 at 6 p.m. CT.
