(Kansas City, Mo.) - Sophomore point guard Estan Tyler was honored for his performance this weekend with Summit League Player of the Week honors, scoring a career-best 25 points and dishing out five assists in a 90-86 road win at South Dakota.

Tyler earned his first award and the first by a Kansas City player since 2010, with a career-high scoring night in a comeback road victory at South Dakota. He put up 25 points in 28 minutes off the bench on 10-of-13 shooting while dishing out five assists without committing a turnover. His previous career-best was 17 points, and it was the ninth time this season he had set a career-high of some sort.

Tyler, who entered the contest averaging 10.0 points per game, connected on five-of-seven three-point attempts and accounted for 11 of his team's 19 made field goals (five assists, six made shots) during a record-setting second half. The Kangaroos shot a school-record 82.6 percent during the second half to overcome a nine-point deficit. The comeback victory snapped Kansas City's nine-game road losing streak and marked the 'Roos first league road win since Dec. 2011.
