Butler Bulldogs senior forward Roosevelt Jones is the BIG EAST Player of the Week.

After Kelan Martin picked up the award last week for his stellar performances, the award will stay in Indianapolis this week after Jones came up large in Butler's impressive 74-68 victory over the vaunted Purdue Boilermakers in the 2015 Crossroads Classic.

Jones scored 19 points in the win over Purdue, grabbing 11 rebounds and dishing out five assists in the victory as well. It's the third consecutive week that a Bulldog has won the award, as Kellen Dunham and Kelan Martin preceded Jones in victory.
