McCree Earns LSWA Weekly Honor for Fifth Time

Feb. 7, 2017

RUSTON – For the fifth time this season, Louisiana Tech’s Erik McCree was selected as the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Men’s Basketball Player of the Week.

The redshirt senior averaged 22 points while shooting 46 percent from the field and 64 percent from three-point range (7-of-11) in helping the Bulldogs post two big home wins over WKU and Marshall.

On Thursday night against the Hilltoppers, the forward registered 14 points, hitting a career-tying four three-pointers, and seven rebounds despite being in foul trouble.

Two nights later, he went off for a game-high 30 points and 11 rebounds for his league-best 11th double-double of the season versus the Thundering Herd. It marked his fourth career 30-point game and his third career 30-point/10-rebound performance.

The Orlando, Florida native also tied his career high with four assists and three blocks in that game.

McCree and the Bulldogs are currently alone in second place in the league standings with seven regular season games remaining. Next up is a road trip to the state of Texas on Thursday, Feb. 9 versus UTEP. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. CT.
