Seton Hall’s Myles Powell takes home Big East Player of the Week honors for the first time this season, but it won’t be the last.
But now, Powell is taking home his first Big East Player of the Week this season, per the Big East. The dynamic guard is a Wooden Award hopeful and he’s off to one heck of a start.
Despite suffering a tough loss to Michigan State, Powell erupted for 37 points, including six made three-pointers.

The senior is an absolute stud and he’s worth all the early-season hype. His 37 points against Michigan State weren’t enough to secure the victory, but it was enough to show that Powell, and by extension the Pirates, are for real. The Spartans are one of the best teams in the country and Seton Hall gave Tom Izzo’s squad all they could handle.
On Sunday, Seton Hall and Powell traveled to St. Louis to play in front of a raucous crowd. Head coach Kevin Willard‘s squad didn’t waste any time quieting that crowd and putting the game away early. Somehow, Powell scored a quiet 26 points which is a ridiculous statement.

The Pirates fell from No. 12 to 13 in the AP poll this week following the loss to Michigan State. Rankings are more or less irrelevant in college basketball, but there’s no doubt that Seton Hall is among the best in the country, especially when Powell is firing on all cylinders.
