This past week was a good one for West Virginia athletics.

On Monday, the Big 12 Conference announced that WVU’s Oscar Tshiebwe was named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week for men’s basketball.

In Friday’s game against Pitt, the freshman achieved a double-double as he went for 20 points and 17 rebounds in a 68-53 win. 

Additionally, quarterback Jarret Doege received the same honor for football.

After transferring from Bowling Green prior to this season, Doege received his first career start for the Mountaineers on Saturday. The junior threw three touchdowns en route to a 24-20 upset victory over No. 24 Kansas State.
