Josh Hart, JayVaughn Pinkston earn Conference and Big 5 Honors

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Building on the opening week of the 2014 Big East schedule that saw Villanova (13-1, 2-0) claim victories on the road at Butler and a 30-point win at home over Providence, and a bump to #8 in the AP Poll, Wildcat Junior JayVaughn Pinkston and Freshman Josh Hart have been granted honors by the Big East and the Big 5.

Pinkston earned Big 5 Player of the Week for scoring a total 41 points in 'Nova's two victories on 16-28 shooting.

For the second time this season, Hart was tabbed with Rookie of the Week by the Big East. The Freshman averaged 10 points on 7-11 shooting (including 5-8 3FG) and 4 rebounds in the Wildcats' victories over the Bulldogs and Friars.
