Ochefu's monster performance earns him Big East Honor Roll

New, 4 comments

This week's Honor Roll is impressive

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Villanova forward Daniel Ochefu appeared on this week's Big East Men's Basketball Weekly Honors. The junior finished Wednesday's opening conference matchup with 10 points on 5-8 shooting, adding in 9 rebounds and 5 blocks.

What really got the attention of writers and fans alike was his stat line against Seton Hall. In Saturday's loss he dominated with 19 points on 7-9 shooting with 24 rebounds (8 OREB). He clearly separated himself from the rest of the team in that game.

The Honor Roll may seem like a consolation prize for a near 20-20 performance, but just take a look at what the honorees managed to do.
