Notre Dame, Ind. – For the second time in three weeks sophomore Luke Harangody (Schererville, Ind.) has been named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll. Harangody was recognized for the honor after averaging 16.5 points, 13.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists after leading the Irish to wins over Kansas State (68-59) and Northern Illinois (108-62) while also shooting 53.8 percent from the field.
Dominic James of Marquette was named the BIG EAST Player of the Week, while Dominque Jones of USF picked up rookie-of-the-week accolades. Also named to the league’s Honor Roll were DaJuan Sumners of Georgetown, Sam Young of Pittsburgh, Scottie Reynolds of Villanova and Alex Ruoff of West Virginia.
The 6-8 forward, who leads Notre Dame in scoring (17.1) and rebounding (9.2), registered back-to-back doubles in both contests. He scored a game-high 10 points and grabbed a career and game-high 14 rebounds against Kansas State and followed that up with 14 points and 12 rebounds versus Northern Illinois.
Harangody has scored in double figures in all but one game and currently owns a seven-game double figures scoring streak. His four double-doubles this season (which leads the team) all have come in the last six games. He also is shooting 56.4 percent from the field.
Harangody has helped the Irish to a 7-2 mark this season and a 5-0 mark at home. Notre Dame set the Joyce Center consecutive win streak mark of 25 straight games against NIU on Saturday, a record that dated back to the final two games of the 2005-06 campaign.
The Irish are off for final exams and return to action on Sat., Dec. 22 when they play host to San Francisco.
