KUTZTOWN, Pa. – For the second straight week, the Kutztown University men’s basketball team is represented by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) for weekly awards. After a two-game week, redshirt-junior Anthony Lee was recognized as the PSAC East Athlete of the Week, and redshirt-freshman Moe Williams garnered East Freshman of the Week honors.
It is the second weekly award in a row for Lee, who was named Athlete of the Week on Monday, Dec. 4. Williams was recognized for the first time in his career.
The Golden Bears (8-1 overall, 4-1 PSAC) won both of their games last week and are on a six-game winning streak, with the only loss being an 89-87 setback at California (Pa.) back on Nov. 18.
Lee led KU at 22 points per game (ppg) in KU’s 2-0 week. He made 60 percent of his shots, including a 6-for-12 clip from 3-point range, with an 8-for-9 performance at the free throw line. He added four rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 steals per game. Against Bowie State on Wednesday, Dec. 6, an NCAA Tournament team last year, he scored 21 points on 7-of-9 shooting in 39 minutes. On Saturday, Dec. 9 against Seton Hill, he scored 23 points with six rebounds.
Lee is fifth in the PSAC in scoring (21.1 ppg), seventh in field goal percentage (59.0), first in three-point percentage (53.1), sixth in free-throw percentage (92.9) and second in steals (25).
Williams returned to the starting lineup against the Griffins and posted his first career double-double in an 84-64 KU victory. He tallied 11 points, 11 rebounds, three blocks and two steals. He averaged 7.5 points and 8.5 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the field. Defensively, he had five blocks on the week. Against the Bulldogs, Williams played 15 minutes off the bench, scoring four points, grabbing six rebounds and dishing out three assists.
Williams is fourth in the conference in blocks (13), 15th in rebounds per game (7.1) and fourth on the team in scoring (7.4 ppg).
Kutztown returns to the court on Saturday, Dec. 30 when it travels to take on first-place West Chester University (8-0, 5-0).
