IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Big Ten Conference honored Iowa's Mike Gesell as the conference Player of the Week on Monday. The honor comes on the heels of the senior guard's first career double-double double.

Gesell scored 22 and dished out 10 assists in the Hawkeyes' 77-66 victory over Nebraska on Tuesday. The win improved Iowa to 3-0 in Big Ten play for the first time since the 2002-03 season. The Iowa point guard dished scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half of the game with the Huskers.

Gesell's only other weekly conference honor came in 2012 when he was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week.

Iowa travels to East Lansing, Michigan, on Thursday to face Michigan State.
