Jeffries adjusting to being 'the man'Jan 17, 2002 12:35 am
Jared Jeffries was having a hard time adjusting to being IU's go-to guy. Coach Mike Davis said it, and Jeffries admitted it. That was before last week. The 6-foot-9 sophomore forward torched Michigan State and Iowa, leading the Hoosiers to back-to-back victories over ranked opponents and carrying them to the top spot in the Big Ten. His efforts earned him Big Ten Player of the Week honors, the conference announced this week. It is Jeffries' second Player of the Week award this season -- his other came Dec. 10, 2001 -- and the second of his career.
