This marks his second straight weekly honor.

Blaszczyk (Naperville, Illinois) posted a triple-double against Aurora University Tuesday and neared another in a win over Wisconsin Lutheran College Saturday as the No. 18 Eagles posted a 3-0 week to clinch the top seed and a share of a third straight NACC title.

He then notched 20 points in a win over Marian University Thursday with five boards and four assists before finishing the week with 11 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in dispatching Wisconsin Lutheran, completing a stretch of six games in 13 days while securing a seventh consecutive win.
