Figured this was coming after VC’s 24 point performance yesterday against Marquette. It’s really great to see Council finally get some recognition for how he has played this year.
Council was tabbed as BIG EAST Rookie of the Week after he averaged 14.5 points and 4.0 assists in two games as Providence split a pair of BIG EAST road dates. He scored five points with four assists in a 79-62 win at DePaul and had a career-high 24 points with four assists in a 93-63 loss at Marquette. Council is averaging 8.6 points and 3.7 assists for the Friars.
Vincent Council joins Greedy Peterson and Sharaud Curry as Friars who have made BIG EAST honors this year (they both made the regular Honor Roll). Let’s hope this is the first of many for our young PG!
