His 12 double-doubles have matched Keith Wright's '12 total from 2010-11 for most in a season under Tommy Amaker, The Thomas G. Stemberg '71 Family Endowed Coach for Harvard Men's Basketball, while he is just shy of becoming only the second Ivy Leaguer to average a double-double since 1995-96.

This honor marks the second of the season for Edosomwan after also being named Player of the Week on December 28 following a dominant performance at the 2015 Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic.
