After being named the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Newcomer of the Week last week, junior guard Ray Croon has been appointed the Player of the Week, announced by the conference office on Tuesday.
The Detroit, Michigan native leveraged 20 points for his fourth straight game of 20 points or better, pulled down a team-high eight rebounds while adding four assists, four steals, and one block in an 85-79 win over Tuskegee University on Jan. 13.
Croon has been a critical factor over the last several games, averaging 20 points since Dec. 30 leading to the Thorobreds winning three in a row, and four of their last five contest.
KSU will look to extend its win streak to four with a road trip to Mobile, Alabama to face-off with Spring Hill College on Jan. 20 at 3 pm ET.
