NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Coming off a pair off double-double performances, Davidson’s Hyunjung Lee has been named Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, as announced by the Conference office Monday afternoon.

A junior from Yongin City, South Korea, Lee finished the week of Nov. 29 – Dec. 5 averaging 22.0 points and 12.0 rebounds, while shooting 46.7 percent from 3-point range and 86.7 percent at the charity stripe.

In Davidson’s win over cross-county rival Charlotte, the preseason all-conference selection scored a career-high 32 points and hauled in a personal-best 14 rebounds. In addition, he went 9-of-17 from the floor, including six treys and was a perfect 8-for-8 at the line.

Lee backed his career night with another double-double, his third in four outings, with a 12-point, 10-rebound showing in Saturday’s win against William & Mary.

On the season, Lee is averaging a team-best 18.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.

Last year, Lee became the first Wildcat to shoot at least 50 percent from the field (.508), 40 percent from 3-point range (.442) and 90 percent from the foul line (.900) in a season.

Davidson, which has won five straight and sits at 6-2 on the year, returns to the hardwood Sunday with a 1 p.m. tip at Northeastern.
