Josh Hart, junior guard for the Villanova Wildcats, is this week's winner of the Big East Coast Bias Player of the Week award.

Hart becomes the first Villanova Wildcat to win the award this season after a tremendous effort in his team's last two games. He joins such players as Ben Bentil, Kris Dunn, Kelan Martin, Roosevelt Jones, Maurice Watson Jr. among others to receive the award this season.

While the Silver Spring, Maryland native scored just four points in the Wildcats' victory against the Temple Owls on Wednesday, Hart exploded for 22 points on 50 percent shooting in a win over the Butler Bulldogs on Saturday. The junior guard turned it up a notch late and helped 'Nova take over and win once again at The Pavilion. Hart would also add 12 boards, a block, a steal and two assist to his line on Saturday.

This was one of the more diverse fields as five players received at least one vote. Myles Davis, who recorded a triple double this past weekend, picked up three votes. Both Desi Rodriguez and Trevon Bluiett each received two votes and Kelan Martin nabbed one vote.
