Aaron Craft, Ohio State's senior point guard, was named the Big Ten Player of the Week after leading the Buckeyes to a pair of wins last week.
The Findlay, Ohio, native has earned three Big Ten player of the week awards and two this season.
Last week he averaged 12 points and connected on 9 of 14 field goals (.643) while recording 10 assists and nine steals in wins at No. 17 Iowa and at home vs. Purdue.
Craft is currently No. 1 in career steals in both Big Ten and Ohio State history since the NCAA began recognizing steals as an official statistics in 1985-86. Craft enters the home game vs. Michigan Tuesday with 310 career steals.
He also is No. 1 in career assists at Ohio State (646) and No. 7 all-time in the Big Ten.
His next field goal will be the 400th of his career. He will become just the sixth Ohio State player all-time with 400 career field goals and 4,000 minutes (4,449).
