    Bloomington, Ind. - Indiana sophomore guard Bracey Wright was named co-Big Ten Player of the Week, the Conference office announced, for the third time this season. Wright averaged 25 points per game to lead the Hoosiers to a pair of road victories and a share of first place in the Big Ten standings.

    The sophomore guard played every minute of both games and connected on 57 percent of his three-point attempts (8-of-14) and 92 percent of his free throws (12-of-13) while averaging 5.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists. The pre-season All-Big Ten choice tipped off the week with 28 points at Ohio State in 40 minutes on the court. He put in some extra time at Minnesota, playing all 45 minutes of the overtime victory and producing 22 points, eight caroms and five assists. The Texas native collects his third Player of the Week award this season, which is tied with multiple players for the third-highest single-season total in Big Ten history along with fellow Hoosiers Jared Jeffries (2001-02) and Calbert Cheaney (1992-93). Wright now has five Player of the Week honors in his two-year career, which is also the third-highest total in League annals.
