ATLANTA, Ga.—The Southern Athletic Association has announced the men's basketball Player of the Week for games played Nov. 26 through Dec. 2 and Kevin Kegarise of Birmingham-Southern earned the weekly award.
Kegarise, a senior from Franklin, Tenn., led Birmingham-Southern in their lone game this week, scoring 21 points in the 75-72 road win against a stout Emory University squad on Wednesday. He shot 7-10 (.700) from the field, all from three-point range, led the team with six assists, and added a rebound and a steal to his line. The win over the always-tough Eagles gives the Panthers a 4-2 mark on the young season.
The Panthers are off this week but return to action on Saturday, Dec. 15, traveling to face conference foe Millsaps at 5 p.m.
