DePaul Blue Demons freshman guard Eli Cain is the recipient of this week's BIG EAST Freshman of the Week award per a release from the conference.
Cain was integral in DePaul's 2-0 week versus UIC and Chicago State, scoring 11 and 20 points respectively against his opponents. Cain grabbed seven combined rebounds and dished out four combined assists in the two meetings and shot 12-for-17 from the floor last week as well.
This is Cain's first BIG EAST Freshman of the Week award of his young career. He joins Khryi Thomas (Creighton Bluejays), Yankuba Sima (St. John's Red Storm) and Henry Ellenson (Marquette Golden Eagles) as the winners of the award so far this season.
