INDIANAPOLIS, In. -- Drury University senior guard Alex Hall has been named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week, it was announced by the league office Monday. Hall recorded a pair of 30-point games this past week while helping the Panthers to a two-game lead in the GLVC West Division.
In Thursday's 90-75 win over Missouri-St. Louis, Hall netted 30 points on 10-of-12 (.833) shooting, which included an impressive 6-of-7 (.857) from beyond the arc. He also added a pair of rebounds, two assists, one steal and a block in 33 minutes of play.
Hall also shined in Drury's 86-64 victory over Maryville on Saturday, a matchup that featured the West's top-two teams. The Springfield, Mo., native scored his second-consecutive 30-point game, this time on 9-of-17 (.529) shooting from the field and 8-of-16 (.500) from the perimeter. In 33 minutes of play, Hall contributed four rebounds, and an assist to his stat line.
On the week, Hall averaged 30 points on 19-of-29 (.655) shooting, which included 14-of-23 (.609) from three-point land.
This is the third career weekly award for Hall, who was first recognized by the league on Nov. 23, 2009 and then honored on Dec. 10, 2012.
