Missouri Southern junior Cam Martin has been named the MIAA men’s basketball Player of the Week as announced by the league office today.
Martin earns his second Player of the Week honor this season.
Martin, a 6-9 native of Yukon, Okla., helped the Lions to a 2-0 start to the conference slate with a 96-64 win against Pitt State and a 90-83 win against Washburn. For the week, Martin averaged 21.5 points, 12.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 2.5 blocks, while shooting 53 percent from the field and 75 percent from the free throw line.
He started the week with 23 points and 12 rebounds, going 11-of-19 from the field against PSU. Martin finished the week by helping the Lions erase a 10-point first-half deficit against Washburn, leading an 18-1 run over a five minute span to give the Lions the lead. He scored 20 points and had eight rebounds, going 4-of-7 from long-range, while adding six assists.
Martin and the Lions are off for finals week, but Southern returns on December 16 as the Lions travel to Texas A&M Commerce for a noon start.
