Yes incredibly, Bren Spillane was named the Big Ten Player of Week AGAIN. This is the third week in a row, Spillane has been honored with the award.
Maybe it’s not so incredible. In the past week, Spillane went 8 for 11 with five homeruns, seven rbis, and nine runs scored.
Not only has Spillane continued his B1G POY streak but this is the fifth conference Player of the Week owned by an Illini.

It doesn’t stop there…

It is the second week in a row, he has been honored with this award.
