After hitting a game-winning shot and matching a career-best point total, Indiana junior James Blackmon Jr. was named co-Big Ten Player of the Week with Wisconsin's Ethan Happ.

Blackmon's buzzer-beating 3-pointer handed the Hoosiers a 78-75 victory at Penn State on Wednesday as he finished with 17 points and five rebounds. He scored 33 points Saturday in an 82-75 win over Michigan State.
