IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa junior Jarrod Uthoff was named Big Ten Player of the Week. The honor is the first of Uthoff's career since last January/2014.

Uthoff  helped lead Iowa to its first 2-0 start in 12 years with wins at No. 18 Ohio State (71-65) and vs. Nebraska (70-59).

The former Cedar Rapids Jefferson star shot 50 percent clip from the field (11-of-22), including (7-of-14) from 3-point territory, averaging 16.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.0 block in Iowa's two victories. 

Iowa (11-4, 2-0) returns to action Thursday when it hosts Michigan State (10-5, 1-1).
