COLUMBIA, Mo. - Marcus Denmon had one of the most memorable minute of play in Mizzou basketball history.
The senior guard from Kansas City has been named this week's Big 12 Conference Player of the Week for his performance Saturday night against Kansas. Denmon scored 29 points, including nine-straight to erase an eight-point Jayhawks lead. His nine points came on two three-pointers and a three-point play.
"He made some tough shots," said Missouri Head Coach Frank Haith. "He got into a rhythm and when Marcus (Denmon) gets into a rhythm he can rattle off a few shots in a row. And I think at that point in time he just got in a rhythm."
Denmon averaged 17.5 points and seven rebounds per game in wins against Kansas and Texas. Denmon's six three-pointers against the Jayhawks ended a shooting slump of 5-31 from beyond the three-point arc.
