Player of the Week

Kris Joseph

Kris JosephKris JosephJoseph scored 27 in a grind it out win over Providence Tuesday night, playing 40 minutes and hitting a career high 4 three pointers. He's becoming the lead guy the Orange hoped he'd be heading into the season, scoring 20 or more 3 of his last 4. His athleticism and defensive potential as a swingman are unquestioned, but if he can continue to improve his outside shot and expand his game off the dribble, look for Joseph's stock to rise as a potential mid first rounder.

Kennedy, Justin Brownlee and Dwight Hardy combined for 54, using their experience and smarts to get to the line and keep West Virginia off of it. The big three combined to shoot 25-26 from the stripe in what was the clear difference in the game. With 5 seniors in the starting lineup, don't expect West Virginia to be the only team the Storm knock off in the Big East.
