IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa forward Jarrod Uthoff was named Co-Big Ten Player of the Week on Monday.

The honor was the second of his career. Uthoff shot 61 percent from the field in games against Iowa State and Western Illinois.

The senior scored a career high 27 points in the win against the Leathernecks, and then bested that with 32 at Iowa State just days later, 30 coming in the first half. Uthoff's 32 points against the Cyclones was the most by a Hawkeye since Matt Gatens put up 33 against Wisconsin in 2012.
