Abrom Claims Fifth Conference Player of the Week Award

HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Belmont Abbey's DeQuan Abrom has been named Conference Carolinas Men's Basketball Player of the Week, the league office announced today. The award is the fifth of the season for the junior guard, while the Crusaders have now won seven times as a team.

Abrom helped The Abbey maintain its hold on second place in the conference standings with a 1-1 week. He averaged 36 points per game, including a 45-point effort against Barton on Wednesday. The total was the second-highest in school history after a 61-point game registered by Bob Stewart in 1959. Abrom followed that with a team-high 27 in a win over Erskine on Saturday, tallying 20 in the second half.

For the week, Abrom shot 63.9 percent from the field and 88.5 percent at the free throw line, while also averaging 5.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 steals. His 13 of 13 effort at the charity stripe against Barton are the most without a miss by any Crusader this year.
