Harris was chosen as BIG EAST Player of the Week after he had season-highs of 19 points and 15 rebounds for his BIG EAST-leading seventh double-double of the year to pace Syracuse to a 95-74 win against Northeastern. The win extended the Orange's winning streak to four games. Harris also had seven assists and four steals in the win.
Darquavis Tucker, meanwhile, was tabbed as BIG EAST Rookie of the Week. He had 18 points and a team-high seven rebounds to go with three assists and two steals to lead DePaul to a 70-64 road win against Detroit. Despite starting just three games, Tucker is the Blue Demons' second leading scorer with 13.6 ppg.
