A.J. Hammons Named Co-B1G Player of the Week

New, 2 comments

Once again, A.J. is the top player in the league from the past week and is hungry for more.

A huge second half from A.J. Hammons against Vanderbilt and a dearth of games due to the holiday has the Purdue senior winning another Big Ten Player of the Week Award. He had 21 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 blocks against the Commodores, but shared the award with Bryn Forbes of Michigan State. The tiebreaker does go to A.J.'s postgame meal, however:

As one of our other writers said in our group text that night, that is life food right there and a sandwich I would gladly eat.

So yes, we need a local West Lafayette restaurant (hint: TRIPLE XXX) to create The A.J. and market that sandwich. I just had a nice lunch and I would probably eat one.

Oh, and congrats to A.J. for the POTW award.
