Reggie Hearn from Northwestern has won StatSheet's Big Ten Player of the Week for January 21st. StatSheet's Big Ten Freshman of the Week is Wisconsin's Sam Dekker. And finally, Nick Colella from Penn State is the StatSheet Big Ten 6th Man of the Week. Hearn put up great stats in rebounding (2.5 per game), shooting (60%), and scoring (21 pts per game). The Northwestern senior played well for the Wildcats in a victory against 23rd ranked Illinois and a loss to Indiana.

Hearn led all scoring for the Wildcats with 20 points on 57% shooting in a 68-54 upset win over Illinois. He followed that up by leading the team in scoring with 22 points on 58% shooting in a 67-59 loss to Indiana.

This is the first StatSheet Big Ten Player of the Week honor for Reggie Hearn. The runner-up this week is Deshaun Thomas, a junior from Ohio State. Honorable mention goes to Minnesota junior Austin Hollins. Cody Zeller finished fifth and was the highest ranking player from Indiana.
