    Bloomington, Ind.-- Indiana's Bracey Wright was named the Big Ten Men's Basketball Player of the Week this morning by the Conference office. Wright averaged 20.5 points and 6.5 rebounds last week to lead the Hoosiers to a pair of victories and earn his first Player of the Week honor this season. The sophomore guard opened the week with a team-high 19 points, including hitting three-of-five three-point attempts, while adding four caroms and three assists in guiding Indiana to a narrow three-point road victory against in-state rival Notre Dame. He followed that performance with a game-high 22 points, including another three triples, and nine rebounds in a triumph over Butler.

    The Texas-native has scored in double-figures in every game this season and 10 straight contests dating back to his freshman campaign, when he earned Third Team All-Big Ten honors and was named to the Conference All-Freshman Team. He currently ranks second in the Big Ten with 21.1 points per outing while his 6.4 rebounds per game are tied for 11th.

    Wright earns the third Big Ten Player of the Week award of his career. He was also honored twice as a freshman when he became just the sixth first-year standout to be selected on multiple occasions and the first in the previous 10 years.
