Senior Adam Pegg was named College Sports Madness Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Week for his performances against ETSU and USC Upstate, as announced by the online publication on Monday.
Pegg led the Hatters in scoring during both the win at ETSU and the victory at USC Upstate. The center totaled 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting in a 72-70 win over the Bucs, and poured in a season-high 25 points and grabbed six rebounds in a 66-64 victory against the Spartans to move Stetson into a tie for first place in the A-Sun with a record of 4-2.
The senior scored in double figures for the 11th and 12th straight games, now giving Pegg double digit points in 15 out of 16 contests played this season. For the week, he averaged 21 points on nearly 70 percent shooting (18-of-26), 80 percent shooting from beyond the arc (4-of-5), and a perfect 2-of-2 from the free throw line.
During A-Sun action, Pegg is third in the league with an average of 18.0 points per game, while shooting 57 percent from the floor and 54 percent from three-point range. Pegg and the Hatters continue league play at home this weekend with games against Northern Kentucky on Thursday and Lipscomb on ESPN3 on Saturday.
