CHARLOTTE, N.C. - UNC Asheville forward Will Weeks (Charlotte, N.C.) has been named The Crons Brand Freshman of the Week for games played Jan. 21-27 by the Big South Conference office on Monday.


Weeks averaged 16.5 points and 7.0 rebounds in the Bulldogs' two wins last week.  He recorded 12 points, six rebounds and three steals against Coastal Carolina on Jan. 23, and followed with a team-high 21 points on 7-of-10 from the field and 7-of-10 from the charity stripe against High Point this past Saturday.  Weeks also collected eight rebounds and three assists vs. the Panthers.  For the week, he was 10-of-16 from the floor (.625) and 13-of-18 from the line (.722).


This is the second time in three weeks that Will has earned the award. He is Asheville's third leading scorer (10.0) and second in rebounding (5.3). The rookie forward leads the Big South Conference in field goal shooting at .673 percent (37-of-55).


The Bulldogs (11-10, 5-2 BSC) get back in action Wednesday night when they travel to Presbyterian College for a Big South Conference battle starting at 7 p.m.
