MACON, Ga. (Jan. 18, 2010) - Healthy or not, senior Preseason Atlantic Sun Player of the Year selection Siarre Evans (Griffin, Ga.) continues to impress.

 

Following another astonishing week where Evans helped guide the Lady Bucs to a perfect 2-0 mark in conference play, the Griffin, Ga. native received A-Sun Player of the Week honors, which was announced by the league office on Monday.

 

Evans, who has been playing with a sore knee for over a month now, posted her 10th double-double of the year (43rd career) with a 20-point, 14-rebound effort in the Lady Bucs' 88-83 victory over league-leading Florida Gulf Coast on Saturday afternoon inside the ETSU/MSHA Athletic Center. The five-point win over FGCU also snapped the Eagles' 22-game conference winning streak and placed the Lady Bucs only a half-game behind the Fort Myers foe.

 

Less than 48 hours before the meeting with the Eagles, Evans tallied 10 points and four rebounds in the 78-59 victory over Stetson on Thursday. In addition, Evans also finished with season highs in assists (5) and steals (4), while playing only 24 minutes of action against the Hatters.

For the week, the Sport Management major averaged 15 points, 9.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.5 steals in 29.5 minutes of work. Also, it marks the second time this season Evans has won the award and the sixth of her career.

 

Evans and the Lady Bucs carry a four-game winning streak into the Music City this weekend, as ETSU takes on Lipscomb on Thursday evening inside Allen Arena. Tip is set for 6:15 (Eastern).
