Big East weekly awards: LaDontae Henton, Isaac Copeland earn recognition

Henton recorded a double-double against DePaul.

Providence's LaDontae Henton and Georgetown's Isaac Copeland were announced as the Big East weekly award winners Monday, with Henton winning Player of the Week, and Copeland winning Rookie of the Week.

Ladontae Henton scored 22 points and pulled down 11 rebounds in Providence's rout of DePaul early in the week. That was the only game the Friars had last week, so it was good enough to nab Henton the award. Henton, considered by many to be the frontrunner for Big East Player of the Year, currently leads the conference in scoring with 20.6 points per game.

Isaac Copeland is the Rookie of the Week for the second straight week, and it is easy to see why. In Georgetown's two victories last week, Copeland averaged 12 points per game, eight rebounds per game, and three assists per game. In a loaded field for Big East Rookie of the Year, Copeland may be starting to separate himself from the pack a bit.

As always, the Big East also recognized these five players in the Weekly Honor Roll (alphabetical order)

Devin Brooks, Creighton, G, Sr.

Myles Davis, Xavier, G, So.

Darrun Hilliard, Villanova, F, Sr.

Sir'Dominic Pointer, St. John's, F, Sr.
