MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – For the second time this season, West Virginia’s Darryl “Truck” Bryant has been named Big East player of the week, the conference announced earlier today.

Bryant scored 29 points in West Virginia’s 85-64 victory at Rutgers last Wednesday night, and followed that performance up with a 25-point effort in the Mountaineers' 74-62 win over ninth-ranked Georgetown on Saturday.

For the week, Bryant made 14 of his 29 field goal attempts, including 6 of 12 from 3-point range, while also going 20 of 24 from the free throw line. Bryant made five steals, grabbed four rebounds and handed out three assists in helping the Mountaineers improve to 12-4, 3-1.

For the season, Bryant is averaging 18.4 points per game, including a 24.8 scoring average in four Big East games.

West Virginia plays at Connecticut tonight at 7 p.m. in a game that will be televised nationally on ESPN2.

The Mountaineers will be back at the Coliseum this Saturday to face Rutgers in a 2 p.m. game that features the return to campus of many former WVU greats as part of the Varsity Club’s men’s basketball reunion weekend.
