For the second time in three weeks, Adam Stevens, a member of the Mount Vernon Nazarene College men's basketball team, has been named the American Mideast Conference Player of the Week for his performance in games played from November 22-28.
Stevens, a 6-foot-6 senior forward from Mount Vernon, Ohio, recorded his third double-double of the season with 25 points and 10 rebounds in a 96-79 non-conference victory at Asbury (KY) College. He made 11-of-18 shots from the field and he converted his only free throw attempt. He also added four assists, three steals, and a blocked shot.
For the season, Stevens leads the Cougars in scoring (17.3 points per game) and rebounding (8.8 rebounds per game). He is second on the team with seven blocked shots and third with 20 assists. The former Mount Vernon High School standout is shooting 47.7 percent from the field, 41.2 percent from the three-point arc, and 72.7 percent from the charity stripe.
Stevens also became the first player in school history with at least 1,500 points, 500 rebounds, 300 assists, 100 blocked shots, and 100 steals.
MVNC is currently 5-1 on the season. The Cougars will return to action at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday when the team travels to Geneva (PA) College for their AMC opener.
