MSU Men Sweep LSC Weekly Awards

Fuller sets LSC, school blocked shots record to earn third weekly LSC Defensive honor

WICHITA FALLS, TX - Midwestern State's Trevor Fuller set league and school records with 11 blocked shots to earn his third Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Week honor as released by league officials Monday afternoon.
 
The 6-8, 235-pound senior from Dallas needed just 20 minutes to match former All-America Eric Dawson's school record of eight blocked shots set on Dec. 2, 2006 against Southeastern Oklahoma State.
 
Fuller swatted three more shots in the second half to eclipse the former LSC mark of 10 originally authored by West Texas A&M's Carlos Silva in 2004 and matched by Ian Adams of East Central (Okla.) in 2005.
 
The 11 blocked shots are the third most in NCAA Division II this season behind the 14 set by West Alabama's Dakari May and 12 by Florida Southern's Jarel Spellman.
 
Fuller raised his season block total to 83 and needs 13 more to match the school single season record of 96 set by Dawson during the 2006-07 season.
 
He ranks third nationally with 3.32 blocked shots per game and has blocked nearly four shots a game (51 blocks in 13 games) during league play.
 
Midwestern State takes on Cameron Saturday afternoon at Aggie Gym in Lawton. Tipoff is set for 4 p.m. With a win, the Mustangs can clinch an outright league title.

Alston tabbed LSC Offensive Player of the Week

Midwestern State's Khapri Alston earned Lone Star Conference Offensive Player of the honors Monday as released by league officials.
 
The 6-5, 240-pound forward averaged 18 points and nine rebounds a game to lead the 22nd-ranked Mustangs to wins over Texas A&M-Kingsville and No. 16 Angelo State last week to clinch at least a share of their ninth league championship.
 
Alston notched his 10th double-double of the season with 17 points and 11 rebounds in 31 minutes in Saturday's 76-71 victory over Angelo State.
 
The performance came on the heels of an historic 27-point, 25-rebound effort earlier this season against the Rams in San Angelo.
 
Alston paced the Mustangs to an 81-63 win at Texas A&M-Kingsville earlier in the week scoring 19 points on 9-of-14 shooting while hauling in seven rebounds in 25 minutes.
 
He continues to lead the LSC in rebounding at 9.4 board per game and is 11th in scoring at 13.6 points a contest.
 
Midwestern State takes on Cameron Saturday afternoon at Aggie Gym in Lawton. Tipoff is set for 4 p.m. With a win, the Mustangs can clinch an outright league title.
