Lee Named A-10 Men’s Basketball Co-Player of the Week
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Coming off consecutive outings of at least 20 points, Davidson’s Hyunjung Lee has been named Atlantic 10 Co-Player of the Week for games played Feb. 14-20, the league office announced Monday.
A junior from Yongin City, South Korea, Lee shares this week’s honor with St. Bonaventure’s Dominick Welch.
In Davidson’s two wins last week, Lee averaged 24.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 2.0 steals per game, while shooting 59.3 percent from the floor and 90.9 percent at the charity stripe.
The preseason all-conference performer and Julius Erving Award Finalist started the week with a 20-point, 6-rebound performance in the Wildcats’ win over Duquesne on Valentine’s Day.
The 6-7 guard capped his week scoring 29 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including four 3-pointers as well as a 9-for-10 showing at the line in Davidson’s convincing 79-58 victory Saturday against Saint Louis.
This marks the second time Lee has received the honor this season and the fifth time a Wildcat has been recognized in 2021-22.
Davidson, which sits at 22-4 overall and atop the league standings with a 12-2 mark, returns to the hardwood Wednesday evening with a 7 p.m. tip at Duquesne.
