We award the Eagles Male Student-Athlete of the Week honor to sophomore guard Blake Smith.
Smith, a native of Manchester, Kentucky, led the Eagles in during the two River States Conference matchups that were split.
In the 104-86 victory over Midway University, the athletic guard pumped in 17 points while adding 7 rebounds and 2 blocks. He made 3-5 from long range.
In the 124-107 decision at Asbury University, he again led the squad with 21 points on 4-10 shooting while adding 3 rebounds, 2 blocks, and 1 steal. He drained 4-5 from long range.
In the two games, he averaged 19 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 blocks while sinking 13-24 from the field, which included a scorching 7-10 from long range for 70%.
Alice Lloyd is now 9-7 overall, 3-5 RSC. The Eagles were scheduled to square off at Rio Grande on Jan. 16 before it was postponed due to weather. They return to the hardwood on Thursday when they journey to Grayson to battle Kentucky Christian University at 8:00 pm.
