Darius Johnson-Odom Named Big East Player Of The Week

Marquette picked up two wins last week, a 67-47 win over South Florida and an 82-78 win against Villanova. For his efforts in those two games, Marquette guard Darius Johnson-Odom was named the Big East Player Of The Week. He's the first Marquette player to earn this honor since Jerel McNeal did it 3 times in the 2008-09 season.

DJO averaged 21.5 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals for the week. The rebounding number is nice to see, as Johnson-Odom said at the start of the season that he had a goal of 5 rebounds per game. It's worth noting that the senior guard has been Marquette's leading scorer in their last 5 games, all while Marquette's been running off 6 consecutive wins.

St. John's Moe Harkless was named Rookie Of The Week. Notre Dame's Jerian Grant, Pittsburgh's Nasir Robinson, Providence's LaDontae Henton, Syracuse's Kris Joseph, and West Virginia's Kevin Jones were named to the Weekly Honor Roll.
