Sargent tabbed Peach Belt POTW

Anthony Sargent was named Peach Belt Conference men's basketball Player of the Week this afternoon by the conference office.

Sargent took command of the court against Lincoln Memorial University, leading the Hurricanes to an overtime road win by scoring 34 points with eight rebounds.

The senior guard put up 12 of his 34 points in overtime, including seven in a row in the final 32 seconds of the extra period. Sargent hit 11-of-19 field goals and all nine of his free throws while grabbing four offensive and four defensive rebounds. He also had a pair of assists and three steals.

After leading the league in scoring last year, he is on top once again with 23.5 ppg. Sargent is also ranked 14th in field goal percentage, 11th in assists and fifth in three-pointers made.

Sargent becomes GSW's first athlete to win multiple PBC Player of the Week awards.  He was named POTW (February 25, 2008) last season, joining Adrian Robinson (January 2, 2006) as Southwestern's only basketball PBC POTW award recipients. 

The Indianapolis, Ind. native joins men's soccer player Jonathan Smith (October 14, 2008) and golfer Adam McKenney (September 26, 2008) as GSW recipients of a PBC weekly award this academic year. 

The Hurricanes are back in action tonight at Valdosta State for a 7:30 p.m. non-conference game.
