NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Notre Dame junior forward Luke Harangody (Schererville, Ind.) has been named the BIG EAST men’s basketball player of the week. Harangody averaged 30.5 points and 13.5 rebounds in wins over Georgetown and Seton Hall last week.
Harangody notched 31 points and 11 rebounds against the Hoyas on Jan. 5. On Saturday, the junior tallied 30 points and 16 rebounds versus Seton Hall to extend the nation’s longest home court win streak to 45 games. Harangody has recorded 10 double-doubles this season, including a current stretch of five straight. He has reached the 30-point plateau on three occasions this season.
This marks the fourth career BIG EAST player-of-the-week honor for Harangody. He earned the accolade three times last season en route to being named the BIG EAST Player of the Year. The junior forward has been named to the conference’s weekly honor roll three times this season.
Harangody, the BIG EAST preseason player of the year, leads Notre Dame by averaging 24.5 points and 12.7 rebounds this season. The No. 12/13 Fighting Irish return to the court tonight at No. 20/20 Louisville. Tip-off is slated for 7:00 p.m. (ET) on ESPN.
