Trayce Jackson-Davis becomes first B1G player in history to accomplish weekly honors feat
Trayce Jackson-Davis has been on another level for Indiana basketball these past few months. The senior center has bene one of the top players in not only the conference, but the country.
On Monday, Jackson-Davis was named the B1G Player of the Week for his performances in winning efforts against Rutgers and Michigan. He had 48 points, 29 rebounds and 9 assists across those 2 games, adding 3 blocked shots for good measure.
If this seems familiar, it’s because it should. Amazingly, Monday’s Player of the Week distinction was his 4th straight, the most consecutive Player of the Week awards given to one player in B1G basketball history.

Jackson-Davis has scored at least 10 points in every game he has played this season, with his streak dating back to last season when he scored just 6 against Illinois on Feb. 5. For those counting at home, that’s 36 straight games of scoring more than 10 points.
Jackson-Davis is addicted to points-rebounds double-doubles, too. He’s up to 13 on the year, adding 2 more last week against the Scarlet Knights and Wolverines.
Indiana is on a 3-game win streak and has won 8 of its last 9 against a tough B1G schedule. It’ll look to extend that win streak Wednesday night against Northwestern, which just shocked No. 1 Purdue Sunday afternoon.
