Longwood's Tristan Carey has been selected as the StatSheet Big South Player of the Week for the week ending February 25th. StatSheet's Big South Freshman of the Week is John Brown from High Point. And last but certainly not least, Charleston Southern's Paul Gombwer has won StatSheet's Big South 6th Man of the Week.
Carey was the Big South leader in scoring (31.5 pts per game) and three pointers (6.0 per game). He also had huge numbers in both shooting (50%) and rebounding (7.5 per game). The Longwood junior played well for the Lancers in a victory versus Liberty and a loss to Tennessee-Martin.
Carey topped all scoring and rebounding for the Lancers with 40 points and 12 rebounds in a close 102-101 win against Liberty. He then led all scoring with 23 points and added 3 assists in an 89-79 loss to Tennessee-Martin.
This is the first time this season that Tristan Carey has been selected StatSheet Big South Player of the Week. The runner-up this week is our own John Caleb Sanders. Honorable mention goes to our own Davon Marshall.
