To the surprise of very few, Georgetown HoyasGreg Malinowski was named to this week’s BIG EAST Honor Roll for his efforts against Butler and St. John’s.

Greg Malinowski, Georgetown, G, Sr.Scored a career-high 26 points in a win at Butler (84-76) and averaged 19.5 points in a 1-1 week. Had 13 points, seven assists and five rebounds in a 97-94 overtime loss to St. John’s.

At Butler, Greg Malinowski led the Hoyas over the Butler Bulldogs at Hinkle Fieldhouse with a score of 84-76. Malinowski set his career high with 26 points, including hitting 6-of-7 from beyond the arc.

Against St. John’s, Malinowski was 3-for-7 from three, with 13 points, but had 7 assists.

Overall, it was an incredible display of offense by Malinowski that featured great shooting, hard cuts off of screens, and tremendous court vision and poise. Georgetown fans are certainly thrilled to see his contribution, especially considering the sidelining ankle injury to freshman guard Mac McClung.

To that effect, be sure to check out the recent post from our friend, hoyacomesalive, about lineups and roles going forward. Patrick Ewing can’t bump a BIG EAST Honor Roll recipient off the starting lineup, can he? We’ll have to see if/when everyone is healthy...

The winner of BIG EAST Player of the Week should be no surprise to Georgetown fans, as Shamorie Ponds of St. John’s led the Johnnies to a 97-94 overtime victory at Georgetown a few days after pushing the Red Storm to a 89-69 home win against (then #16) Marquette. Ponds was picked as the preseason Big East Player of the Year, and looks to be living up to the nomination as he, Markus Howard, and Myles Powell appear to be ahead of Georgetown’s Jessie Govan in BIG EAST honors.

Others on the Big East Honor Roll:

  • Kamar Baldwin, guard, Butler
  • Martin Krampelj, forward, Creighton
  • Myles Powell, guard, Seton Hall
  • Phil Booth, guard, Villanova

Forward Joey Hauser of Marquette was named Big East Freshman of the Week.
