Illinois point guard Demetri McCamey shares this week's Big Ten Player of the Week award with Purdue guard E'Twaun Moore.

McCamey averaged 20.5 points and 8.5 assists in wins over Iowa and Wisconsin this week. The senior scored 20 points last week in the win over Iowa to open Big Ten Play. He had 21 Sunday against the Badgers to push Illinois to 2-0 in the conference.

Moore averaged 26 points and eight rebounds in Purdue's two wins over Michigan and Northwestern in the past week.

McCamey is the first Illinois player to be named a conference player of the week since he won the honor in February 2010.
