The quick trigger and hot hand of Marcus LoVett earned a Big East Freshman of the Week award - in a week where LoVett came off the bench in a road game against Villanova and at home against Seton Hall.

Kudos to the six-foot point guard, who is balancing his speed and ability to get his shot off with an improving ability to run a team as a high-usage/ scoring point guard.

This is LoVett’s second consecutive Freshman of the Week honor.

The Big East’s blurb:

Big East Freshman of the Week

Marcus LoVett, St. John’s, G, Fr.

LoVett earns Freshman of the Week honors for a second straight week after scoring a game-high 19 points in a 78-70 win against Seton Hall. He also dished six assists, grabbed five rebounds and made three steals, while hitting 7-of-12 shots from the field. LoVett is the highest scoring freshman in the BIG EAST, averaging 17.3 ppg, which ranks fifth overall in the league.

St. John’s tackles Butler on the road on Wednesday, looking to get to .500 in Big East play - and to one game under .500 overall.
