MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Gophers forward Trevor Mbakwe was named the Big Ten Player of the Week for March 4 following his 21-point, 12-rebound performance to beat No. 1 Indiana last Tuesday.

Mbakwe posted two double-doubles, while shooting 73.7 percent from the floor, in his final two games at Williams Arena.

"Wow can't believe that was my last time playing at the Barn," Mbakwe posted on Twitter after Saturday's win over Penn State. "I'm going to miss #gophernation."

Mbakwe had 13 points and 13 rebounds against Penn State, bringing his career double-doubles total to 33

This is the second career Big Ten Player of the Week honor for Mbakwe and his first this season.

Andre Hollins (Nov. 26) is the only other Gophers player to earn Big Ten Player of the Week honors this season.
