Ashland University junior center Drew Noble was named the GLIAC South Player of the Week the league office announced on Monday (Feb. 18) afternoon.
Noble became the fourth Ashland player to win conference weekly honors this season, joining redshirt-senior guard Ben Haraway (Jan. 21), junior guard Rodrick Caldwell (Dec. 10) and redshirt-sophomore guard Aaron Thompson (Dec. 3). It is Noble's first career weekly award.
The 6-foot-8 Louisville, Ohio product averaged 24.5 points, eight rebounds, three assists and one block as the Eagles (21-4, 13-4 GLIAC) went 2-0 last week at Kates Gymnasium against Purdue Northwest and Parkside.
Noble shot 59 percent (19-for-32) from the field, 57 percent (4-for-7) from 3-point range and 78 percent (7-for-9) from the line.
Noble scored 24 points to go with eight rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal against the Pride last Thursday in an 84-56 win. He had a game-high 25 points, eight rebounds and two assists in Ashland's 68-64 win over Parkside on Saturday.
He leads the Eagles and ranks eighth in the GLIAC in scoring (17.0 points per game). He is also fourth in field goals made (156) and free throws made (100).
The Eagles will finish the road portion of their regular season this week, beginning Thursday (Feb. 21) at 8 p.m. at Northwood.
