Louisville has won seven in a row to stay tops in the league. UCONN's loss to Villanova kills a ten point streak and drops them a spot. Pitt has lost three straight. Villanova has rebounded to win three in a row. Syracuse has dropped four of five. After Syracuse, no one is playing well.
Player of the Week- Kyle McAlarney- Notre Dame- Only two players scored more than his 22.5 PPG average in a single game this week. One was Weyinmi Efejuku, the other Luke Harangody. That's right, two of the top three scoring performances this week were different players for the Irish.
Freshman of the Week- DeJuan Blair- Pittsburgh- 14 and 13 against Notre Dame. 20 and 11 against Louisville. Two double-doubles against teams tied for first in the league. Not bad for the freshman.
