Missouri's Ricardo Ratliffe is this week's Lute Olson National Basketball Player of the Week.

The award comes after Ratliffe, a senior, was named the Big 12 Player of the week yesterday. He is the second player from the Big 12 to win the honor this season. Baylor's Perry Jones III won the award on Dec. 19.

Ratliffe was a key contributor in both of the Tigers' games last week, averaging 22 points and 7 rebounds in wins against Texas A&M and Baylor.

He also leads the nation in field goal percentage, making just over 77 percent of his field goals attempted.
