Jan Jagla, Penn State
JR, F, Berlin, Germany/Fritz-Karsen
Jagla averaged 20 points and 8.5 rebounds to share Player of the Week honors and lead Penn State to its first 2-0 Big Ten start since the 1995-96 campaign. The junior forward broke loose for a career-high 28 points and grabbed 10 caroms in a League-opening victory over Minnesota, connecting on 10-of-18 from the field and three-of-six from three-point range. He scored 20 points in the first half alone, becoming the first Nittany Lion to accomplish that feat since Joe Crispin had 20 points in a half against Wisconsin on January 19, 2000. Jagla notched his fifth double-double of the season, which is tied for second among all League players, and the 12th of his career. He boosted PSU to a 2-0 Conference mark with 12 points and seven boards in only 27 minutes against Ohio State. The 7-0 native of Germany currently ranks among the Big Ten’s top five in scoring (4th at 17.4), rebounding (3rd at 8.7) and blocked shots (4th at 1.62). Jagla collects the second POW honor of his career (also selected on December 29) and is the first Penn State standout to earn two League Player of the Week honors in one season since Crispin in 2000-01.

Devin Harris, Wisconsin
JR, G, Milwaukee, WI/Wauwatosa East
Harris became the first Big Ten junior to crack the 1,000-point barrier this season and averaged 18 points, 6.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals to lead the Badgers to their first 2-0 Conference start since the 1993-94 season. The junior guard, who leads the League in assist-to-turnover ratio, racked up 13 assists while committing just one turnover in 74 minutes of action on the week. He opened with 15 points, nine assists and no turnovers in a win over Indiana to become just the fourth active Big Ten player to compile 1,000 career points and just the sixth in Badgers’ history. Against Michigan State, Harris led all scorers with 21 points while adding five boards, four assists and three steals. The Milwaukee-native currently ranks among the top five in the League in points (5th at 17.2), assists (2nd at 5.54) and steals (3rd at 2.15). Harris earns his first Player of the Week nod this season and the second of his career, as he was also honored on January 6, 2003.
