The Big Ten released its weekly award winners for week four of the regular season and three teams ended up splitting the awards. Maryland’s Anthony Cowan and Michigan’s Jon Teske were named Co-Big Ten Players of the Week and Indiana’s Trayce Jackson-Davis was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week.
Cowan had an impressive week of play, averaging 24 points and 4.3 assists per game as Maryland won the Orlando Invitational championship. He was named as the event’s MVP, posting 22 points in the team’s win over Marquette. This is the first time Cowan has earned Big Ten Player of the Week honors.
Similarly, Teske had a big week for the Wolverines. He averaged 13.3 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 3.3 blocks per game as Michigan went on to win the Battle 4 Atlantis. This is also the first time that Teske has earned Big Ten Player of the Week honors.
Jackson-Davis also had a bit week. He averaged 20.0 points, 12.5 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game for the Hoosiers last week. Notably, Jackson-Davis had 21 points and 11 rebounds as Indiana beat Louisiana Tech. This is the second time he has earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors.
Congratulations are in order for all three players. Don’t be surprised if these three show back up on this list given how they have played to date.
