USF basketball: Victor Rudd is National Player of the Week

Mark Konezny-US PRESSWIRE

After a 29-point effort against Bowling Green and a 16-rebound effort against Youngstown State, Rudd takes home the Oscar Robertson award.

South Florida's Victor Rudd earned the Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week award for games ending this past Sunday, according to a press release. The award is decided by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. Rudd was automatically nominated for the national award after being named player of the week in the Big East conference.

Rudd scored a season-high 29 points in South Florida's 87-84 triple-overtime win against Bowling Green on Friday. For all intents and purposes, Rudd willed the Bulls to victory against Bowling Green. He tied the game with a three-pointer near the end of regulation, and scored the decisive points in the closing seconds of the third overtime.

Earlier in the week, Rudd posted 16 points and 16 rebounds in a 72-42 win against Youngstown State. The 16 rebounds were a career high.

Rudd joins Creighton's Doug McDermott and Illinois' Brandon Paul as Oscar Robertson award winners so far this season. South Florida is 7-3 on the season. The Bulls host George Mason on Saturday.
