Saint Joseph's senior Pat Calathes has been named the Player of the Week in both the Atlantic 10 and the Big 5 for January 6. It is the first time in his career that he has earned the A-10 award and the second consecutive week that he's received the Big 5's honor.

Calathes recorded his second straight double-double when he had 20 points and 10 rebounds as Saint Joseph's downed Drexel, 69-51, on New Year's Eve. The 6-10 senior shot 7-for-9 from the field and 5-for-7 from the line. Calathes also added five assists, three blocks and two steals.

The senior leads the Hawks in scoring with 17.4 points and in rebounding with 7.6 per game. He tops the team in blocked shots (1.9) and is second in assists (3.0).
