Weems is the first Freshman of the Week for DePaul since Eli Cain claimed the honor during the 2015-16 season. He is the ninth player to pick up the award for first-year players since Wilson Chandler was named twice during the 2005-06 season.
This week's recognition is third Honor Roll appearance for Reed. He was named twice last season during conference play. DePaul has placed a player on the BIG EAST Honor Roll in each of the first two weeks as Charlie Moore was recognized on the first honor roll of the season.
Seton Hall's Myles Powell was named Player of the Week while Reed was joined on the honor roll by Kamar Baldwin of Butler, Creighton's Ty-Shon Alexander, Omer Yurtseven from Georgetown and Xavier's Paul Scruggs.
The Blue Demons go on the road later this week for a Saturday afternoon game at Boston College. Start time at Conte Forum is Noon ET on ACC Network Extra and WSCR 670 The Score. DePaul returns to Wintrust Arena next Tuesday for a 7 p.m. game against Central Michigan.
