In a single week, Chris Horton put together two of the best offensive performances of the season.

In the middle of some amazing offensive performances this week, there was one player who had two of the most impressive offensive performances of the year in the course of just a single week.

Chris Horton dominated inside against North Florida on Wednesday, and almost was enough to carry the Governors to a win over the Osprey. Horton scored 28 points on 68.4 percent shooting. He also added 17 rebounds, a block and three steals.

If that wasn't good enough, he was even better against Lipscomb on Sunday. Horton would miss just one shot from the floor, finishing 16-for-17, and scoring 37 points. He grabbed 13 rebounds for his ninth double-double in a row, and tenth this season. He also had two assists, a block and a steal in the 92-84 win for the Governors.

For these two performances, Chris Horton is our player of the week.

Also considered: Jared Sam, Southern; Domantas Sabonis, Gonzaga; Wes Washpun, Northern Iowa; Trey Davis, UMass; Kay Felder, Oakland.
