Player of the Week
Jackson may not have the flash or the scoring numbers, but his consistent play for the 5th ranked team in the country should get him some recognition. He's had a double double in all but 2 games, while leading the Big East in rebounding at 12.5 per contest. Against Michigan State, Jackson put up 17 points and 16 boards, providing the Orange with an inside force that can score in the post or off second chance opportunities. Shooting 58% from the floor, Jackson has been a big reason for the Orange early season success.
In a week of few games, it was pretty easy to pick out the cold player of the week. Congratulations Darius Johnson-Odom, your inspiring 1 for 9 performance at Wisconsin has earned you the worst performance of the week honors, and a third non-conference loss. Marquette is going to need DJO to get it going if they want to make a Big East run when conference play begins.
