MACON, Ga. - After leading the Stetson men's basketball team (12-14, 9-6) to a pair of road victories, and securing the Hatters a spot in the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament for the first time since 2008-09, senior Adam Pegg was named A-Sun Player of the Week for the first time in his career, as announced by the league on Tuesday.
Pegg averaged 20.0 points and 8.5 rebounds in wins over Lipscomb and Northern Kentucky that allowed Stetson to remain in third place in the A-Sun standings with a league mark of 9-6. The senior scored 23 points and added 12 rebounds in recording his fourth double-double of the season in a come from behind victory over the Bisons. He then scored 17 points and grabbed five boards against the Norse for his 21st straight game in double figures.
While this marks his first Player of the Week honor from the conference, it's not Pegg's first weekly honor from the league. Last season he was named A-Sun Newcomer of the Week twice. Pegg was also named College Sports Madness A-Sun Player of the Week on Monday. It was the second time this season that the senior earned those accolades.
Stetson returns home this weekend to host Florida Gulf Coast on Friday, Feb. 22 at 7:00 p.m. The Hatters and the Eagles will square off on CSS and ESPN3 with Matt Stewart and Sonny Smith on the call.
