Tray Woodall Named Oscar Robertson National Player Of The Week By The USBWA

Pitt's Tray Woodall, whose return to the lineup has sparked the Panthers' recent winning streak, was named the Oscar Robertson National Player Of The Week by the United States Basketball Writers Association today.

Here's what the USBWA release said about Woodall:

As the Big East Conference Player of the Week, Woodall was nominated for the weekly award, which was chosen by a representative of the USBWA board of directors from a list of Division I conference players of the week.

Woodall, a 5-11 junior from Brooklyn, N.Y., led the Panthers in scoring in victories at West Virginia and against Villanova. In the two games, he averaged 26.5 points, shot 62.5 percent from the floor, 54.5 percent from 3-point range and made all 17 of his free throw attempts.

In Sunday's 79-70 win against Villanova, he tallied a career-high 29 points, pulled down six rebounds and had five assists while going 12-of-12 from the foul line. Earlier in the week, his 24-point effort led the Panthers win to a 72-66 win at rival West Virginia.

The Panthers have won four straight games since Woodall returned to the lineup after missing 11 of 12 games due to injury.
