One day after being named the Big Ten Co-Player of the Week, Northwestern's Drew Crawford was tabbed the Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week as voted on by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA).

Crawford's accolade marks the second consecutive honor for a Big Ten player, after Michigan's Nik Stauskas claimed National Player of the Week plaudits on Jan. 28.

Crawford averaged 23.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game in leading the Wildcats to a pair of road wins over #14/13 Wisconsin and Minnesota. Northwestern has won three consecutive conference road games for the first time since 1960.

In the win over Wisconsin, Crawford poured in a season-high 30 points on 10-of-15 shooting, pulled down eight rebounds, recorded one block and added one steal in 40 minutes to lead Northwestern to its first-ever win at the Kohl Center.

Crawford leads the Wildcats with averages of 16.3 points and 6.8 rebounds per contest. He is the only current Big Ten player to rank in the top 10 in the conference in both categories.
