Michigan guard Tim Hardaway Jr.'s 25 points in a 100-62 win over Slippery Rock on Friday night earned him the Big Ten Player of the Week award.

Michigan guard Tim Hardaway Jr. was named the Big Ten Player of the Week thanks to his dominant performance in the Wolverines' 100-62 blowout victory over the Slippery Rock Rockets on Friday.

Hardaway scored 25 points on red-hot 8-of-10 shooting in the victory and also tied a career high with five three-pointers. In the process, he became the 46th player in school history to surpass the 1,000-point career mark.

The award is the second of Hardaway's career. He also won it last season after a sterling performance at the Maui Invitational that saw him score 60 points in three games.

The junior guard is one of the key players this season for the No. 5 Wolverines. Last season, Hardaway was second on the team in scoring behind backcourt mate Trey Burke at 14.6 points per game. The duo of Hardaway and Burke are widely considered to be one of the nation's top backcourts.
