GW's Creek Named A-10 Men's Hoops Co-Player of the Week
Grad Student is First Colonial to Claim Award Since 2009
Dec. 9, 2013
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - GW men's basketball graduate student Maurice Creek earned a share of the Atlantic 10 Player of the Week award on Monday after leading the Colonials to a dramatic victory over Maryland in Sunday's BB&T Classic.
Creek is the first GW player to earn the A-10's Player of the Week honor since Damian Hollis on Dec. 6, 2009.
Creek, who shares the weekly honor with Massachusetts' Chaz Williams, swished a 20-foot jumper with 0.6 seconds left to cap his 25-point performance and lift GW to a 77-75 victory over Maryland on Sunday. Creek was efficient in that performance, scoring 25 points on just 11 shots (6-of-11 field goals) while converting 10-of-12 free throws.
For the week, Creek averaged 21.5 points on 59 percent shooting (13-22), including 5-of-10 from behind the arc. He began the week with 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting in a 93-87 triumph over Rutgers.
Creek currently leads GW in scoring at 16.3 points per game and is in the top 10 in the conference in scoring (T-8th), free throw percentage (6th, .805), three-point percentage (4th, .462) and three-pointers made (3rd, 2.7 per game).
GW (8-1) returns to action on Wednesday when it hosts Boston University at the Charles E. Smith Center at 7 p.m. The contest will be televised throughout much of the Northeast on Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic, SNY and NESN. Visit GWsports.com/tickets to #RaiseHigh with the Colonials.
