Player of the Week

UIC guard Marc Brown had a slow start to his senior year as he battled a foot injury, but now he’s getting healthy and the results are showing. In two games last week, Brown averaged 19 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals. He also made three 3-pointers in each game.

Honorable mentions: Alec Peters, Valparaiso; Clarke Rosenberg, Chicago State

Freshman of the Week

Chicago State guard Anthony Glover has been the Cougars’ second-best scorer as a freshman, and that continued last week. Glover averaged 12.5 points on 50% shooting last week. He now has six outings where he’s scored in double figures.

Honorable mentions: Tai Odiase, UIC; Bryant McIntosh, Northwestern; Tevonn Walker, Valparaiso
