Holmes earns MAC honor
CLEVELAND - Bowling Green State University's Richaun Holmes has been named the Mid-American Conference East men's basketball player of the week. It's the second straight week Holmes has earned the award.
Holmes registered back-to-back career-highs in blocked shots last week, posting seven in both a home win over North Dakota and a road win at Morehead State.
His seven blocks tied the school record for the most blocks in a single game and is the most by a BG player in a single game since Scott Vandermeer had seven versus Ohio on Feb. 7, 2005.
For the week, Holmes averaged 19 points, on 55 percent shooting from the floor and 78.9 percent shooting from the free throw line, 9.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 7.0 blocks per game, as the Falcons won twice.
In the second half alone of the two contests combined, Holmes averaged 17 points, 7.5 rebounds, 5.5 blocks and shot over 64 percent (9-of-14) from the field and 79 percent (15-of-19) from the free throw line.
