AUSTIN — Following another career outing Saturday night, Texas freshman guard Courtney Ramey has been tabbed by the Big 12 as a Co-Newcomer of the Week.
Ramey poured in 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting, including hitting 5 of 6 from behind the 3-point line, and collected five rebounds and four assists to lead the Longhorns to a 75-53 victory over West Virginia on Saturday night in Morgantown.
With the performance, he tied his career high in points, 3-pointers made and field goals made.
Ramey delivered an impressive alley-oop dunk in the second half of the win over the Mountaineers, too, a surprising highlight moment for the 6-foot-3 guard.
He also posted 10 points, four assists, three rebounds and two steals during Texas’ 84-72 win over Baylor on Wednesday in Austin.
Ramey, a former four-star product from Webster Groves High School in St. Louis, has shown a bit of a spark lately for the Longhorns. After beginning the season as a reserve player, Ramey has started the last seven games, averaging 10.4 points and three assists per game while going 18 of 36 from beyond the arc during that stretch.
Ramey’s previous career day this season came during a 98-88 loss at Georgia on Jan. 26, when he dropped 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting while hitting 5 of 8 from downtown and dishing five assists.
Texas (14-10, 6-5 Big 12) has won three of its last four games and hosts No. 18 Kansas State (18-5, 8-2 Big 12), which sits in first place in the conference standings, on Tuesday night in Austin.
