ST. LOUIS -- Indiana State junior guard Lucas Eitel has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete Of The Week as announced today (Nov. 28) by the league office.

 

Eitel is joined in the honors by Megan Bober, a senior volleyball player for the No. 21 nationally-ranked Creighton women's volleyball program.

 

This is the first MVC Scholar-Athlete Of The Week honor for Eitel, who garnered Second Team MVC All-Academic plaudits one year ago.

 

Eitel hit 11-of-12 shots from the field, including 9-of-10 from three-point range, as the Sycamores won on the road at Ball State (68-48 on November 20) and at home versus High Point (76-62 on November 25).

 

Eitel, who has a 3.62 cumulative grade-point average in education, averaged 15.5 points and 2.0 rebounds per game. Against High Point, he earned his first career start and scored a career-best 25 points on the strength of 9-of-9 shooting, including an Indiana State record of 7-of-7 from behind the three-point arc.

 

He is currently the nation's leading 3-point shooter through three weeks of action as he has connected on 14-of-19 attempts from long range (73.7 percent).

 

To qualify for Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week laurels, student-athletes must carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.20, completed at least one academic year at a Valley institution and must be at least a sophomore in academic standing.

 

Redshirt freshmen and first-year junior college transfers are not eligible. In addition to the academic qualifications, student-athletes will be evaluated on their athletic performance for a one-week period.
