Macon, Ga. (Jan. 9, 2006) - Senior Tim Smith (Newport New, Va.) earned his second straight Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Week award after leading ETSU to a 2-0 week highlighted by his dominating 37-point effort at Campbell on Saturday.

Smith dominated nearly every phase of the game in the Bucs' 110-96 victory versus the Camels. The guard scored a season-high 37 points and nearly posted the league's first triple-double of the season, adding nine assists and a career-best eight steals. Smith hit 15-of-25 shots from the floor and scored 23 first half points to help cap a remarkable 20-minute span that left ETSU leading 65-38 at the intermission. His 37 points are just two off the most scored in the A-Sun over the last four seasons. Belmont's Josh Goodwin (2005-06) and FAU's Earnest Crumbley (2003-04) each scored 39 points in a game.

While his gaudy numbers were impressive in Saturday's win, Smith also helped ETSU hand league leader Florida Atlantic their first conference loss of the season, a 63-61 decision in Johnson City, Tenn. In that game, Smith scored a team-high 15 points and netted four of the team's final six points as the Bucs survived three legitimate scoring chances by the Owls in the closing minute. Additionally, the Newport News, Va. native played all 40 minutes in both contests.

The Atlantic Sun Conference hands out Player of the Week awards weekly during the 2005-06 basketball campaign.

The 11-member league headquartered in Macon, Ga. consists of Belmont, Campbell, ETSU, Florida Atlantic, Gardner-Webb, Jacksonville, Kennesaw State, Lipscomb, Mercer, North Florida and Stetson.
