We award the Men’s Student-Athlete of the Week honor to Danville (KY) sophomore Bryce Slone for his solid play in two River State Conference basketball contests last week. In action against Indiana University Southeast, the sweet-shooting guard went 4-8 from the floor, including 3-4 from deep to finish with 11 points.
Slone followed that effort up in a big 98-93 road victory over Brescia University by shooting 5-11 from the floor (all from long range) and a perfect 4-4 from the charity line to tie for scoring honors with 19 points. The free throws all came at crunch time and helped the Eagles pull out the hard-earned victory. He added 2 rebounds and 1 assist.
For the week, he averaged 15ppg and shot 47% (9-19) from the floor. He went an impressive 53% from behind the arc. (8-15)
