Tuesday, February 15, 2005
Another pair of wins for the Redhawks, which moved Southeast's men's current winning streak to seven games, netted senior forward Reggie Golson the Ohio Valley Conference's player of the week award.
Golson averaged 14.5 points and 10 rebounds in a pair of wins on the road at Eastern Illinois and then at home against Tennessee State. Against the Panthers Golson picked up his seventh double-double of the season with 11 points and 13 rebounds.
This is the second time Golson has won the award and the third time it has gone to a Southeast player. The Redhawks are currently tied for second in the OVC with an 8-4 conference record. Southeast next plays Thursday at Eastern Kentucky.
Southeast's women were also recognized, as Tatiana Conceicao earned newcomer of the week honors once again. Conceicao has earned the honor seven times this season, and Southeast has had a newcomer of the week nine out of 12 weeks.
Conceicao and her Redhawk teammates are in the midst of a 10-game winning streak. Southeast is tied for first in the conference with an 11-1 mark. The Redhawks will travel to Eastern Kentucky on Thursday, which also sits at 11-1 in the conference.
