With St. John’s and Seton Hall cracking The Catch and Shoot Top 25, it’s only fitting that members of these teams were awarded with the Big East’s weekly honors Monday.

St. John’s senior guard D’Angelo Harrison won Player of the Week while Isaiah Whitehead took home Freshman of the Week.

Harrison posted 24 points in the Johnnies’ upset over Syracuse, and he also scored 16 points and nine rebounds in a win against Niagara. He is currently No. 2 in the Big East in scoring with 18.4 points per game.

Whitehead averaged 18.5 points and 3.5 assists in Seton Hall’s two wins, scoring a career-high 25 points against Rutgers.
