UT sophomore guard Rian Pearson was named MAC West player of the week on Monday for the third straight week. This certainly bolsters his case to win MAC player of the year at season's end.
Here were Pearson's stat lines last week in a win over Ohio and a loss at Bowling Green.
Ohio: 17 points, 16 boards, three assists, and 6 of 14 shooting from the field.
BG: 13 points, nine boards, three assists, and 5 of 11 shooting from the field.
