After a monster 24 point game in a losing effort to Marquette and a solid game in a win over DePaul, Vincent Council has earned himself BIG EAST Rookie of the Week honors.

Council was tabbed as BIG EAST Rookie of the Week after he averaged 14.5 points and 4.0 assists in two games as Providence split a pair of BIG EAST road dates. He scored five points with four assists in a 79-62 win at DePaul and had a career-high 24 points with four assists in a 93-63 loss at Marquette. Council is averaging 8.6 points and 3.7 assists for the Friars.

For us who follow the Friars, there is no need to tell us how good VC is, but it is great to see him get some recognition for the great effort he has put forth so far.  His 24 point performance at Marquette was really great and although he didn’t fill up the stat sheet at DePaul he still had a solid game.  That is the thing about VC, he doesn’t need to score a ton of points or even rack up 10 assists per game.  He is a true point guard in that he makes things happen, runs the offense, is confident, and can play some defense.  And that is why it is really great to see him get some recognition.  So congratulations to VC for a great week and a much deserved honor.  Hopefully this isn’t the last time we see him getting BIG EAST honors… we have a feeling it won’t be.
