Loyer Named A-10 Player of the Week
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Davidson’s Foster Loyer has been named Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week, as announced Monday afternoon by the league office.
Loyer, a redshirt senior from Clarkston, Mich., finished the opening week of the 2022-23 season averaging 28.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.7 steals per game. In addition, he shot 46.7 percent (14-30) from 3-point range and converted 25-of-29 (.862) from the charity stripe.
After scoring 30 points in Davidson’s season opener against Guilford, Loyer flirted with a triple-double in the Wildcats’ thrilling come-from-behind double-overtime win at Wright State. The 6-0 guard drilled three 3-pointers and scored 11 of his career-high 38 points in the second overtime as Davidson erased a 21-point deficit to rally past Wright State, 102-97. Loyer also added 11 rebounds and 9 assists in 48 minutes of action.
The preseason all-conference performer capped Davidson’s 3-0 week with 17 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists in Sunday’s win over VMI.
The Wildcats will take part in the 2022 Charleston Classic Nov. 17, 18 and 20. Davidson opens the annual event with former league rival College of Charleston on Thursday at 7 p.m. inside TD Arena.
