We split the Men’s Student-Athlete of the Week honor between a trio of juniors: forward Chance Cornett, guard Blake Smith, and guard Ian Lee.

In the season-ending 95-84 defeat at the hands of the Hiwassee Tigers in the NCCAA Mideast Region Tournament, Cornett sank 9-14 field goals to finish with a game-high 20 points while grabbing 2 rebounds
Smith, a first-team All River States Conference selection, would up 7-10 from the floor and finished with 19 points and added 3 rebounds and 2 assists.
Lee came off the bench to provide a huge effort as he drilled 7-14 shots (5-11 3FG) and also scored 19 points. Additionally, he led the club with 6 rebounds on the night.
