Aldridge snags first weekly award

Texas forward Lamarcus Aldridge earned Big 12 Player of the Week honors after he averaged 18.0 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game while converting 23-of-36 (.639) field goals in Texas victories against No. 13 West Virginia (76-75), No. 18 Iowa (68-59) and Louisiana-Monroe (90-55).

Get used to this, Horns fans. Aldridge is already amazing, and he's only going to get better as the season progresses. My bold prediction of the week: By season's end, Lamarcus Aldridge will be in the national player of the year discussions and a first team All-American.

He's that good.
