Seth Davis at SI (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/college-basketball/news/20130107/fast-break/) also gives Kelly player of the week honors.

Player of the Week: Kelly Olynyk, Gonzaga

This 7-foot Canadian is literally the biggest reason why people are touting the Bulldogs as a Final Four-caliber team. It is unusual for a player to redshirt his junior season for developmental purposes, but that was what Olynyk agreed to do last year. His purpose was to develop his skills, put muscle on his frame, and most important, wait for Robert Sacre to graduate. Olynyk returned a much-improved player, which he proved this week by contributing 22 points (on 12-for-15 shooting), 10 rebounds and two blocks in the Zags' 81-74 road win at Santa Clara on Saturday night. That came two days after his 16-point performance in a win at Pepperdine. On the season, Olynyk is averaging 17.1 points and 6.6 rebounds while shooting 67.5 percent from the field and 81.4 percent from the foul line. He has even made four three-pointers. He gives Gonzaga a big-time presence inside and out, and he's only going to loom larger as the season goes on.

He must have thought that two of Kelly's made field goals were 1-pointers.

Congrats to Kelly!

contributing 22 points (on 12-for-15 shooting),

Kelly penalized for growing up in a metric system. It's an outrage!
