The Xavier Musketeers have swept this week's BIG EAST awards.

Bluiett joins his teammate Edmond Sumner in taking home an award this week, as the freshman guard picked up the BIG EAST Freshman of the Week award while the sophomore guard Bluiett hauled in Player of the Week honors.

The Indianapolis native Bluiett shined this past week scoring 23 points in Xavier's win over Providence on Wednesday. Then, Bluiett chipped in 13 in the Musketeers' road victory over Georgetown on Saturday afternoon to pick up an average of 23.0 points in last week's games. The Xavier forward also averaged 5.5 rebounds in the two contests.

Sumner, meanwhile, had a huge game against the Hoyas. The freshman point guard scored 22 and was 9-for-9 from the free throw line on Saturday afternoon with perhaps his best shooting performance of the season. The Detroit, Michigan native had 11 points against the Friars last Wednesday and missed just one field goal attempt all night.
