On the heels of averaging 15.6 points and 5.3 rebounds in Villanova's three victories over USC#2 Kansas, and #23 Iowa en route to the Championship, at the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, Villanova senior James Bell has been named Player of the Week by the Big East Conference and the Philadelphia Big 5.

Last season, Darrun Hilliard earned the honors for his efforts in the back to back wins over #5 Syracuse and #2 Louisville.

Villanova is now ranked #14 in the AP Poll following on the heels of the team's performance in the Bahamas.
