Gary McGhee was named to the Big East Honor Roll for his play last week against Georgetown and Syracuse. McGhee averaged nearly a double double over those two Big East games and being named to the Honor Roll means he was under consideration for conference player of the week honors.
McGhee has been pretty consistent lately. Over the past eight games, he's averaged nearly a double double and has tallied either ten points or ten rebounds in six of those contests. McGhee will never be confused with a superstar, but his performances lately have pushed his season averages to 7.1 ppg and 7.7 rpg.
His play gives Pitt another dimension inside and he is a big reason that Pitt could be a tough out in the NCAA tournament.
UConn's Kemba Walker was the Big East Player of the Week after averaging 25 points, five rebounds and four assists per game in helping the Huskies to victories over Rutgers and DePaul.â†µ
