Seton Hall Pirates guard Isaiah Whitehead is your Big East Coast Bias Player of the Week award.

The Abraham Lincoln High School alum from Brooklyn, New York received 10 of 12 votes cast this week, an ear unanimous selection after fetching 83.3 percent of the votes accounted for. The sophomore guard for Seton Hall is now the second Pirate to receive the honor after sophomore forward Angel Delgado was a split-recipient earlier this year.

Whitehead, who was also named as the BIG EAST's Player of the Week, had an exceptional week of play. He tallied 47 combined points in the Pirates' victories over Providence and No. 5-ranked Xavier and amassed a field goal percentage of 48.1 percent (13-27 FG). The sophomore guard also picked up an ORtg of 168 in the win over the Friars, his highest of the season by a pretty comfortable margin.

Others receiving votes this week were Whitehead's teammate Desi Rodriguez as well as Villanova Wildcats forward Kris Jenkins.
