Junior guard Tray Woodall was named the Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week today for his efforts in a pair of wins last week.
The award is given by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association and the Blue Ribbon College Yearbook each Tuesday.
Woodall averaged 26.5 points, five rebounds and four assists in victories over West Virginia and Villanona. He shot 62.5 percent from the floor, 54.5 percent from 3-point range and made all 17 of his free throw attempts.
He scored a career-high 29 points in a 79-70 victory over Villanova on Sunday. He had 24 points in a 72-66 win at West Virginia.
As the Big East Conference Player of the Week, Woodall was nominated for the award, chosen by a representative of the USBWA board of directors from a list of Division I conference players of the week.
Pitt (15-9, 4-7 Big East) is 4-1 since Woodall returned to the lineup after missing 11 of 12 games due to a groin/abdomen injury.
