NORMAL - Illinois State guard Osiris Eldridge, who averaged 29.0 points and shot 60.6 percent from the field in two games last week, was named Missouri Valley Conference player of the week on Monday.

In a win over Missouri State, Eldridge scored a game-high 24 points, including a 5-for-9 effort from beyond the 3-point arc.

In a loss at Indiana State, the sophomore scored a career-high 34 points on 12-of-18 shooting, hitting 7-of-9 3s. It was his second 30-point effort this season.

It is Eldridge's second weekly honor of his career.
