TEAM OF THE WEEK: Pittsburgh

Jamie Dixon's squad scored a pair of road wins at West Virginia and Villanova. The Panthers prevailed with top scorer Ashton Gibbs on the sidelines.


CO-PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: Norris Cole, Cleveland State and Jordan Taylor, Wisconsin

Cole had one of the great statlines you will ever see in a win over Youngstown State: 41 points, 20 rebounds and nine assists ... WOW! Taylor had 27 points and a brilliant second-half in a win over then-No. 1 Ohio State.


COACH OF THE WEEK: Bo Ryan, Wisconsin

He led the Badgers to a come-from-behind win over Ohio State, giving the Buckeyes their first loss of the season. Wisconsin rallied from a 15-point deficit to earn a four-point win over Thad Matta's club.


SHOCK OF THE WEEK: Rutgers over Villanova

It wasn't just the fact that the Scarlet Knights won, but the way they did it. Jonathan Mitchell scored on a four-point play with .8 seconds left to give Mike Rice's team the upset. Crazy, baby!


DIAPER DANDY OF THE WEEK: Tim Hardaway Jr., Michigan

The son of the former NBA star had a solid week in a pair of wins. He had a double-double (17 points, 10 rebounds) vs. Northwestern. Then he had a career-high 26 points (nine-of-11 from the field) against Indiana.
