Men's Basketball Athletes of the Week (period ending 2/24/19)
Player of the Week
Justin Martin, Husson
Selected to the All-Conference First Team on Thursday, Justin Martin led his team from the second-seed to the conference title over the weekend. In a semifinal matchup with #3 SUNY Canton on Friday, Martin drained twenty points and dished out two assists. He grabbed six rebounds, three steals, and also put up three blocks in the win (85-74). Facing a red-hot Thomas team that knocked number one-seed UMF out of the tournament the night before, Martin continued to lead his team with composure. He scored a game-high 26 points, nearly missing a double-double with nine rebounds. He put up four blocks, stole the ball once, and nailed 6-for-6 free throws as the Eagles pulled away from Thomas after a tie-game at the half. Martin was selected as the All-Tournament MVP for his performance over the weekend.
Rookie of the Week

He totaled 18 points, eight rebounds and two assists in the win. In the NAC Final on Saturday, Goodson scored 13 points, along with five rebounds and four steals, as the Terriers finished as the NAC Runner-Up.
