Michigan’s LeVert shares weekly Big Ten honor

The Detroit News

Michigan senior guard Caris LeVert reached a milestone and made a little history last week and now has a Big Ten honor to boot.

LeVert was named the Big-Ten Co-Player of the Week after averaging 16 points, eight rebounds, 7.5 assists and 1.5 steals in a pair of easy victories last week over Northern Kentucky and Youngstown State.

LeVert, who also shot 64.7 percent from the field, shares the honor with Illinois junior guard Malcolm Hill.

The 6-foot-7 LeVert became the 49th player in Michigan history to score 1,000 career points in the 77-62 victory over Northern Kentucky — a game in which he also became just the fourth Michigan player to record a triple-double. He finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

In a 105-46 victory over Youngstown State, LeVert had 19 points, six rebounds, and five assists.
