Ricky Wins POW


Rick Jackson won Andy Katz's Player of the Week Award, beating out BYU's Jimmer Fredette, Hofstra's Charles Jenkins and Providence's Marshon Brooks.

From ESPN:

The preseason hype about Syracuse was focused on Kris Joseph and freshman Fab Melo. But if the Orange were to choose an MVP so far this season, it could be only Jackson. Jackson has anchored the team, mentored the youthful big men on the back line of the zone and become the rock of this team and, more importantly, their most productive frontcourt player. Jackson was dominant in Syracuse's Jimmy V Classic win over Michigan State with 17 points and 16 boards. He was efficient in making 8 of 15 shots. The Orange crushed Colgate at home this past weekend as expected, but Jackson didn't take a day off. He was just as effective with another double-double (18 and 10) for his eighth double-double in 10 games. If he keeps up this pace, he'll be a lock for first-team all-Big East status and a real candidate to be Big East Player of the Year. Fredette's 33 points in a win over Arizona was high on the list, but Jackson's performance against the Spartans was more significant.

Good work Ricky.  Keep it up and you'll be on that First Team All-Big East squad.

 

What do you guys think about his All-American potential?
