The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native exploded for two big performances this past week that proved pivotal for his team's successes. The Jays knocked off No. 5 Xavier at home and then picked up a huge road win over the Marquette Golden Eagles to take sole possession of third place in the BIG EAST Conference.
Watson dropped 32 points, seven rebounds, five assists and two steals in Creighton's rout over the Musketeers last Tuesday, and then followed that up with 18 points, 10 assists, five boards and two steals against the Golden Eagles in Milwaukee.
