Crawford played all 40 minutes against Wisconsin and poured in a season-high 30 points, adding 8 rebounds, 3 assists, a block and a steal in Northwestern's victory at the Kohl Center on Wednesday. It was third time in his career that Crawford contributed 30-or-more points in a game for the 'Cats.

He followed up that performance with a game-high 17 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists in Northwestern's one-point victory in Minneapolis.

This is the third weekly honor from the Big Ten that Crawford has received.

D.J. Newbill, a junior guard for Penn State, earned co-honors as he averaged 22.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in Penn State's victories over No. 24/23 Ohio State and Purdue.
