Creighton Bluejays point guard Maurice Watson Jr. has been announced as the BIG EAST Player of the Week.

The former Boston University Terrier shined in both Bluejay victories over the Georgetown Hoyas and Seton Hall Pirates this past week. Watson, a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania dropped 27 against the Hoyas with seven rebounds, four assists and a steal while shooting 9-for-13 from the field and 7-for-9 from the free throw line.

No. 10 for the Jays then outdid himself in their 82-67 romp over the Seton Hall Pirates in New Jersey. While Watson scored 13 points, down from his 27 against Georgetown, he put on a show by dishing out 14 assists, a season high and the biggest output he has had since a 17 assist-outing against Army back on March 8, 2014 while still playing for BU.
