NEW ORLEANS – Tulane University freshman guard Jalen Cook was named American Athletic Conference Player of the Week on Monday by the league office after he helped guide the Green Wave to a pair of AAC wins this past week.

In two games last week, Cook averaged 22.5 points per game and connected at 50.0 percent clip from the field. The Walker, Louisiana, native was especially effective from long range, as he shot 63.6 percent, connecting on seven 3-pointers.

In addition, Cook dished out four assists and did not have a single turnover.

Cook’s performance helped guide the Green Wave to their first 2-0 start in AAC play since 2014-15.
