Adrian Powell from North Carolina A&T has won StatSheet's MEAC Player of the Week for December 24th. StatSheet's MEAC Freshman of the Week goes to Coppin State's Sterling Smith. And last but certainly not least, Coppin State's Troy Franklin has won StatSheet's MEAC 6th Man of the Week. Powell put up big numbers in assists (3 per game), shooting (60%), and scoring (16 pts per game). The North Carolina A&T senior played well for the Aggies in a victory against Eastern Kentucky.

This is the first time this season that Adrian Powell has been selected StatSheet MEAC Player of the Week. The runner-up this week is Jean Louisme, a senior from North Carolina A&T. Honorable mention goes to Lamont Middleton, a junior from North Carolina A&T. Kendall Gray was the highest ranking player from Delaware State, finishing 14th.

StatSheet MEAC Freshman of the Week: Coppin State's Sterling Smith

Sterling Smith played an average of 31 minutes as a starter for Coppin State. In a late 64-61 win over Towson, Smith rang up 7 points and 5 rebounds. In an 80-50 loss to Iowa, he led scoring with 9 points and rebounding with 6.

This is a new honor for Sterling Smith, the first time he has won StatSheet MEAC Freshman of the Week. Bruce Beckford from North Carolina A&T gets runner-up. Honorable mention goes to Khiry White from Savannah State.

StatSheet MEAC 6th Man of the Week: Coppin State's Troy Franklin

This is the first StatSheet MEAC 6th Man of the Week award for Troy Franklin. Karamo Jawara, a sophomore forward from North Carolina Central, is runner up. Our own Tyshawn Bell earns honorable mention. Delaware State players have not yet been named StatSheet MEAC Player of the Week this season.
