Providence Friars guard Kris Dunn has been named this week's BIG EAST player of the week as released on the BIG EAST'S official website.

Dunn had a great week as he scored over 20 points and nearly recorded a double double in both of Providence's wins this week over St.John's and Butler. This is just a part of what has been a great season for the preseason BIG EAST Player of the Year thus far. He is averaging 17.5 points per game and leads the team with 7.3 assists per game. Dunn and teammate Ben Bentil, who leads the team in scoring with 18.9 points per game, has helped Providence to a 14-1 record so far, the best record in the BIG EAST.

Dunn is the second Providence Friar in consecutive weeks to get this award as Bentil nabbed it last week. Things are looking up for Ed Cooley and the Friars as they find themselves sitting at #8 in the AP Poll.
