He followed that effort with a career-high 26 points against Marquette with two assists and a rebound in 37 minutes. Against the Golden Eagles, he knocked down a career-high five three's including the game-tying three at the end of regulation with just under two seconds on the clock to send the game to overtime.
The Chicago native leads all BIG EAST freshman with five Rookie of the Week honors and is the league freshman leader in scoring, assists and free throw percentage.

Bryce Cotton of Providence was named the league's Player of the Week while Doug McDermott from Creighton, Georgetown's Markel Starks, Jamil Wilson from Marquette, Seton Hall's Fuquan Edwin and Ryan Arcidiacono from Villanova were picked to the Weekly Honor Roll.
