Dick Vitale's weekly awards


Head coach Tad Boyle has done a super job as the Buffaloes won at Kansas State and beat Oklahoma State. Colorado is 3-0 in the Big 12 after winning just six games in league play last season.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jimmer Fredette, BYU
The All-Solid Gold candidate had 47 points and six assists against rival Utah in a 104-79 rout. This is the second week in a row Fredette has been named my player of the week!

COACH OF THE WEEK: Mark Turgeon, Texas A&M
Turgeon's Aggies are moving up in the rankings following a blowout win over Oklahoma State and an OT thriller over Missouri. Texas A&M is a dangerous team that deserves more ink, baby!

SHOCK OF THE WEEK: Florida State over Duke
After losses to Auburn and Virginia Tech, you couldn't expect the Seminoles to beat then-No. 1 Duke. But Leonard Hamilton's team fought hard and got to the winner's circle.

DIAPER DANDY OF THE WEEK: Terrence Jones, Kentucky
He set a Kentucky freshman record with 35 points in a win over Auburn. Then he scored 17 while grabbing seven boards in a victory over LSU.
