Downey gets player of week nod

Little late on this but according to the SEC website, USC point guard Devan Downey was named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week for the week of December 3-9.

Downey, a 5-9, 175-pounder from Chester, led the Gamecocks to a 68-67 vixtory against Providence in the Pizza Hut Big East/SEC Invitational, totaling 21 points with five steals and five assists in the victory. His fifth steal of the game led to a fastbreak layup for a 65-59 Carolina lead, ending a six-minute Gamecock scoring drought.

Downey ranks fifth in the SEC in scoring (18.4 ppg), is fourth in assists (4.8 apg) and second in steals (3.4 spg). The transfer from Cincinnati has scored in double figures in all nine games this season.
