The Protege

Player of the Week

Jessie Govan, C, Junior, Georgetown Hoyas

Jessie GovanJessie GovanYou would have been hard pressed to tell me before the season that this early, if at all in the year, a Georgetown Hoya would be getting top player honors one week. Jessie Govan is absolutely deserving of the honor, though.

Golden Eye

Player of the Week

Markus Howard, G, Sophomore, Marquette Golden Eagles

Markus HowardMarkus HowardFor the second straight week, a Golden Eagle shows up on the blog for all the right reasons. Marquette had the conference’s top offense last season and led the nation in three-point shooting.

Reigning in the Bahamas

Player of the Week

Mikal Bridges, F, Junior, Villanova Wildcats

Mikal BridgesMikal BridgesVillanova is sitting at 6-0 early in the season, they just defeated Northern Iowa to win the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament Title, and they are expected to move up from their No. 5 ranking with Arizona losing twice in two days. A huge part of their success has been junior forward and NBA hopeful Mikal Bridges.
