Oglethorpe senior guard Christian Molinet was named the SAA Men's Basketball Player of the Week today for his work in the three games November 19-25.
Molinet led the Petrels to a 3-0 week, including a 2-0 finish in the weekend's Oglethorpe Thanksgiving Classic, en route to the team's first 4-0 start since 1998. For the week, he averaged 13.3 points, 6.3 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game. He shot 57 percent from the floor and 67 percent from three-point range. In Tuesday's 84-71 win at Piedmont, he scored 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting, and was a perfect 2-for-2 from beyond-the-arc. Then against Maryville on Saturday, he scored 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting, 1-of-2 from three, and added six assists and five steals. He closed out the weekend on Sunday against LaGrange with 15 points on 3-of-7 shooting, nine assists and six rebounds.
