Indiana men’s basketball senior forward Trayce Jackson-Davis was awarded player of the week honors from NCAA March Madness, ESPN.com and the Naismith Trophy, the publications announced Monday morning.
Jackson-Davis led the Hoosiers to double-digit wins over Illinois on Thursday and Michigan State on Sunday. The Preseason All-American averaged 33 points, 12 rebounds, 4.5 assists and four blocks, establishing himself as the first Division-I player in 25 years to record those statistics during a two-game stretch.
Jackson-Davis has earned a handful of accolades throughout the season, most recently including recognition on the Oscar Robertson Trophy Midseason Watch List and the John R. Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 Watch List.
Amidst multiple highlight reel plays, Jackson-Davis’ poster dunk against Michigan State was named Play of the Week by the Big Ten Conference.
The Hoosier forward is averaging career highs in many different categories this season: 19.4 points on nearly 60% shooting from the field, 10.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.1 blocks.
