Surprise, surprise Nick Ward is taking home more hardware, this time both Player and Freshman of the Week.

Ward was unstoppable last week against Nebraska — 20 points (8/13 shooting), 9 rebounds — and in Sunday’s huge win over Wisconsin — 22 points (9/12 shooting), 9 rebounds.
This marks the 4th time Ward has won the award and the 9th (!) time a Michigan State player has brought home (shocking, but Miles Bridges accounts for the other five). Puddin’ is also the first freshman to win Big Ten Player of the Week.
