Pitt Basketball: Gary McGhee Named To Big East Honor Roll

Gary McGhee was named to the Big East's weekly honor roll, given consideration for conference player of the week.

Last week, McGhee averaged nearly a double double in playing against Georgetown and Seton Hall. As Grupp points out, this is the first time he can remember McGhee getting any official Big East recognition from the conference.

I would never call Gary McGhee great and I don't even think I'd classify him as very good. But there are certainly times when he plays very good. Over the past six games, he's been in double figures in scoring in four of them and has collected at least nine rebounds in five. And over that span, he's also averaging 10.1 ppg and 9.6 rpg.

Even more impressive is how efficient he's becoming with his minutes. In those six games, the most minutes he played were 27 Monday night against Syracuse. If he got to the point where he topped 30 (which considering he hasn't done it all season is probably a reach barring an overtime game), he could perhaps do even more.

Even with Dante Taylor, who will be a junior, and incoming freshman Khem Birch, he's definitely going to be missed next year.
