Big Ten Player of the Week
Carl Landry, Purdue
Sr., F, Milwaukee, Wis./Vincent
Landry earns Player of the Week accolades for the second consecutive week after averaging 19.0 points and 8.5 rebounds in wins over No. 25 Virginia and Delaware State last week. Against the Hokies, the senior forward went 7-of-12 from the field while tallying 19 points and eight rebounds. In only 25 minutes of action, Landry then tallied 19 points and nine rebounds in a 62-40 win over Delaware State. For the week, he shot over 60 percent from the floor (14-of-23) and connected on 71.4 percent from the free throw line (10-of-14). He also recorded four assists, two blocks and three steals. Purdue's win over Virginia was its first non-conference home win over a ranked opponent since 1995. Landry, who currently leads the Big Ten in scoring with 19.3 points per game, picks up his third career weekly accolade after also being honored on Nov. 27, 2006 and Jan. 3, 2005.
