Providence College senior guard Weyinmi Efejuku (Fresh Meadows, N.Y.) averaged 22 points, shot 56.3 percent (9-16) from the field and was 24-27 (88.9 percent) from the free throw line in the Friars’ two wins last week. He becomes the first Friar to earn BIG EAST Player of the Week honors since Herbert Hill (Kinston, N.C.) was named Player of the Week on March 4, 2007. It marks the first time in his career that Efejuku has earned the honor and 39th time in the history of the league that a Friar was named Player of the Week.
