The Starting 5 has highlighted the best players of the week for the past four weeks. Most of the players profiled have come from tournaments. This week is no different. The Rumble on the River in Baton Rouge had some notable scoring performances during the tournament. So, needless to say, the players of the week from week 5 will come from that tournament.

The LSU signee had a big week/weekend.  Anyone who averages 42.5 points in a four game span, I would definitely say it was a great week.  Cook was on fire from deep during the Rumble on the River.  There were times when it seemed like he could not miss.  His ability to finish through contact at the rim was very apparent during the weekend as well.  Time and time again, no matter who he attacked at the rim, he finished through them.  We probably will not see a better performance during the season than the one Cook put on at Madison Prep last week.
