Senior forward Will Perry of the Oglethorpe men's basketball team earned the SAA Men's Basketball Player of the Week award from the league office on Monday, marking the second such award in his career and the program's first of the season.
Perry enjoyed his best game of the year so far, despite the Stormy Petrels' 88-80 loss at Covenant on Saturday. He scored 26 points on 8-of-15 shooting overall, 3-of-6 from beyond the arc, and 7-of-9 from the free-throw line.
This season, Perry is averaging 13.7 points per game. He ranks sixth in points and ninth in rebounds per game among all SAA student-athletes.
He and the rest of the team will break for the holidays before returning to Dorough Field House for the Comfort Inn and Suites Holiday Classic Dec. 29-30. They'll take on Ozarks (Arkansas) at 5 p.m. on Dec. 29 and Bridgewater (Virginia) at 3 p.m. on Dec. 30. They'll move back into conference play starting on Jan. 4.
