SEC PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Dwayne Curtis, Ole Miss
C * 6-8 * 262 * Sr. * Chicago, Ill.
Curtis posted season highs of 22 points and 11 rebounds in helping Ole

The senior center finished three points shy of his career high and
made good on 10-of-12 from the floor to improve his season field-goal
percentage to .712, which ranks second in the SEC.

This despite Wannstedt bringing in some highly-regarded recruiting classes, and the new certainly hasn't gotten any better the past week or so.
