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 second of the year for the junior from Washington, D.C. and the fourth time in nine weeks that a Crusader has been honored.
Abrom led The Abbey to a pair of Conference Carolinas wins last week against Erskine and Lees-McRae. He averaged 29.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and four assists and has the team on its best start ever in conference play at 6-0. In a 101-94 win over Erskine, Abrom poured in 26 points on 53.3 percent shooting to go with seven boards and five assists. He followed that performance up with his third 30-point outing of the season, as he posted 33 points with six boards, three helpers, one steal and one block in an 83-75 victory.
Abrom currently averages 21.1 points, 3.5 assists and three rebounds per game. His points-per-game average ranks second in Conference Carolinas, while his assists rank fourth in the league.
Belmont Abbey, 12-3 overall, is in the midst of a three-game road trip, traveling to North Greenville Wednesday and Southern Wesleyan on Saturday.
