March 4, 2013

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - A pair of Temple standouts, Khalif Wyatt and Victoria Macaulay, have been named the Philadelphia Big 5 Men's and Women's Players of the Week, respectively, for their outstanding performances.

Wyatt averaged 22 points and 5 assists per game in a 2-0 week for the Owls and came up clutch down the stretch in both wins.  Against Detroit, he had a game-high seven assists and scored all 20 of his points in the second half including 12 in the final two minutes as the Owls won 74-69.  Then, with the game knotted at 64 apiece against Rhode Island, Wyatt scored seven of the Owls’ final 12 points en route to a 76-70 triumph.

Sweeney averaged 22 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 3.5 blocks per game in a 1-1 week.  In a narrow setback to St. John’s, she had a double-double of 15 points and 11 rebounds.  She then helped the Wildcats bounce back in thrilling fashion, a 3 OT win against Syracuse, by scoring a career-best 29 points on 11-of-20 shooting and eight rebounds.  She also tallied four assists, four blocks, and a pair of steals.

Macaulay averaged a double-double of 19.5 points and 11 rebounds a game in a 0-2 week.  She shot 45.9% from the field, handed out six assists, and had five blocks in the two contests.  Against Butler, she notched 21 points and 13 rebounds and followed that up with an 18-point, 9-rebound performance versus Fordham on Senior Day.
