KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- After stellar performances against South Carolina and Texas A&M last week, the Southeastern Conference named Tennessee point guard Jordan Bone SEC co-Player of the Week.

Against Texas A&M, Bone posted a double-double with 18 points and 10 assists. Early in the week, Bone contributed 19 points and nine assists.

Bone, a Nashville native, was routinely referred to on game broadcasts as the most "underrated point guard in the nation."

With 6.6 assists per game, Bone leads the SEC. He also leads in assist/turnover ratio (3.6).

Kentucky's P.J. Washington was the other SEC co-Player of the Week.

Bone and Tennessee will put their 16-game winning streak on the line against former Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin and Missouri Tuesday night at Thompson-Boling arena.
