 D.J. White applauds his selection as Big Ten POW.

Shares it with E’Twaun Moore of Purdue.

It’s the fourth time White has been honored this season.

Press release below . . .

——

D.J. White, Indiana
Sr., F, Tuscaloosa, Ala./Hillcrest

White averaged 24 points and 15 rebounds in two games and continues his quest to become the first player in the Big Ten to average 12 or more rebounds in conference play in 31 years.  The Tuscaloosa, Ala., native had 22 points and 17 rebounds at Wisconsin and 26 points–a Big Ten career-high–and 13 rebounds against Northwestern. He was seven-of-13 from the field and eight-of-10 from the line against the Badgers and nine-of-11 from the floor and eight-of-11 from the charity stripe versus the Wildcats. White also had three blocked shots during the week. He is currently averaging 12.3 boards in Big Ten play. Iowa’s Bruce King was the last player to average more than 12 boards per contest in 1977. This is the fourth weekly honor of the season for the Hoosier and fifth of his career. White now ties Indiana’s Kirk Haston for the most Player of the Week honors in a season (2000-01). Purdue’s Glenn Robinson holds the single-season record with five Player of the Week awards during the 1993-94 season.

Last IND Player of the Week: D.J. White (1/14/08)

E’Twaun Moore, Purdue
Fr., G, East Chicago, Ind./East Chicago

Moore averaged 18.0 points in Purdue’s two wins last week. The East Chicago, Ind., native scored a team-high 12 points in a win over Iowa and scored a game-high 24 points at Illinois. Against the Illini, he connected on 10-of-12 shots from the floor and scored 20 points in the second half. Moore went eight-of-nine from the floor during an eight-minute stretch, which enabled Purdue to maintain the lead down the stretch. Over the two games he was four-of-nine from three-point range. This is the first weekly laurel for Moore.

Last PUR Player of the Week: Keaton Grant (1/21/08)

Congrats DJ. Well deserved,

Moore? I dunno. I didn’t see their game, although I heard he played well.

DJ White is well on his way to the Big 10 Player of the Year Award. A great example of what staying that extra year and working your tail off can do for you.
