West Virginia's Kevin Jones leads the Big East in scoring and rebounding after another week of play. You might want to just pencil him in as the leader for the whole season as he has led virtually the whole way anyway. Darius Johnson-Odom remained in second place in scoring and Maalik Wayns moved up to third in scoring.

On the team side of things, Pittsburgh fell to third in points per possession offense while Marquette slid into second place. Georgetown slipped past Louisville for the lead in points per possession defense. Syracuse still leads in points per possession offense and turnover margin.
