Peyton Siva named Big East Player of the Week

A solid omen as conference play officially opens up this evening with Pitt/UConn at 8:30.

In Louisville’s only game of the week, Siva poured in 29 points and dished eight assists in a 114-82 victory at Western Kentucky.  He shot 8-of-13 from the floor, including 4-of-7 from 3-point range.  For the year, Siva, who hails from Seattle, Wash., is averaging 12.1 points, 4.7 assists and 2.1 steals.  His steals average is third in the BIG EAST.

Siva also garnered his 23rd straight Big East Most Adorable Player of the Week award. Congrats to Peyton on both honors.

DePaul's Cleveland Melvin, who does exist, was named the league's Rookie of the Week.
