Someone has received back-to-back Player of the Week honors for the first time this season, as Charlie Sharp was sensational once more for Western Michigan. First, he scored a hat trick as the Broncos defeated Wisconsin-Green Bay in the first round of the NCAA tournament, then headed home the overtime game-winner as the MVC champions upset Duke in the second round. It seems a matter of when, not if, the Senior striker will get his goal.
