WASHINGTON - Georgetown University junior men's basketball player L.J. Peak (Gaffney, S.C./Gaffney) was selected to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll on Monday.
Peak helped to lead the Hoyas to a pair of wins over nationally-ranked opponents, topping then-No. 16 Creighton, 71-51, last Wednesday, and then beating then-No. 11 Butler, 85-81, at Hinkle Fieldhouse on Saturday night.
A guard, Peak averaged 21.0 points, 5.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds while shooting 58.3 percent from the floor and 50.0 percent from 3-point land.
He scored 20 points and had five assists in the win over Creighton and followed that up with a game-high 22 points, six assists and three boards in the win at Butler. Peak's 20 points in the Creighton win moved him past the 1,000-point mark for his career and he became the 46th player in Georgetown history to eclipse that mark.
Peak is second on the team in scoring (16.3 ppg), leads the team in assists (3.4 apg) and is fifth on the team in rebounding (4.0 rpg). Peak ranks among the BIG EAST leaders in scoring (11th, 16.3), assists (9th, 3.4), free throw percentage (6th, 82.4%), assist/turnover ratio (9th, 1.3), and minutes played (4th, 33.5 mpg).
This is the fourth time this season Peak has been recognized by the league, as he was named the Player of the Week on Jan. 16 and was selected to the Weekly Honor Roll on Dec. 12 and Dec. 19.
