Player of the Week

Jordan TheodoreJordan TheodoreJordan Theodore, Seton Hall

I would love to have a friend like Theodore. He's become one of the best sharers in the conference, consistently fulfilling his duties as a senior point guard.

Theodore has been averaging 18 points and 8.8 assists over his last five games. He has defined the term "floor general", wisely picking and choosing when to score and distribute with great efficiency. His leadership and poise have helped transform Seton Hall from being a break on the schedule to an unpleasant matchup.

He leads the Big East in dishes at 7.4 per game.

Vincent Council PG, Providence

Council was fantastic against Louisville, slicing through their pressure defense for 15 points and 14 assists, turning it over just twice in 40 minutes. He added 8 boards in one of the most complete performances given from any point guard in the conference this year.

Maalik Wayns PG, Villanova

Though Nova lost, Wayns had a career night against Cincinnati, finishing with 39 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists and only 2 turnovers. Wayns has improved as a scorer, but remains questionable as an orchestrator. 39 points from your point guard is never a good sign.

Kevin Jones PF, West Virginia

Another day at the office for Jones. 24 points, 14 rebounds in a cakewalk over Rutgers. Man does he look good.
