Without further ado, here are the week 4 nominees:

Drew Brandon led the Eagles in rebounds (12) and assists (11) as he completed his 2nd double-double of the season.  The Senior Point guard played his trademarked unselfish game dishing to his teammates rather than trying to stuff the stat box.  He took 4 shots hitting 2 and adding 1 free throw for his 5 points.  He committed just 2 turnovers to continue his impressive Assist to Turnover ratio which stands at 40-12 on the season.

Ognjen "OG" Miljkovic, the only underclassmen to start for this Eagle squad stuffed the stat sheet against the Redhawks with 14 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 blocks and 1 steal while committing just 2 turn overs.  The only downside to his performance was that he only hit 2 three's on 7 attempts.  Coach Hayford's offense is built on hitting 40% from beyond the arc and the Eagles fell well short of that against Seattle U.

Tyler Harvey, like "OG" struggled a bit uncharacteristically from beyond the arc hitting just 3 of 10 attempts.  That being said Tyler still poured in 18 points including 5 of 6 from the FT line which has been one of Coach Hayford's priorities the past couple weeks.  He added 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.

Venky Jois is playing so well right now, that it is impossible to keep him off this list.  Nominated for the 1st 3 weeks of the season, he's won POW honors the last two weeks as well.  Venky struggled early on from the Free Throw line hitting 10 of his first 29 attempts.  Since then he's 22 of 28 including 12 of 15 against the Redhawks.  Seattle had no answer for Venky as he scored 38 points for a second straight game on 13 of 18 from the field he also added 7 rebounds, 3 blocks and 2 steals with just one personal foul.
