Wofford's Lee Skinner has been chosen as the StatSheet SoCon Player of the Week for the week ending March 4th. StatSheet's SoCon Freshman of the Week goes to Elon's Tanner Samson. Also, Trent Wiedeman from College of Charleston is the StatSheet SoCon 6th Man of the Week. Skinner put up huge numbers in scoring (14 pts per game), shooting (80%), and rebounding (9 per game). The Wofford sophomore played well for the Terriers in a win against Citadel and a loss to College of Charleston.

Skinner led all rebounding for the Terriers with 7 while adding 6 assists in a 55-50 loss to College of Charleston. In the next game he led all scoring and rebounding with a 21 point and 11 rebound performance in a 69-62 victory against Citadel.

This is the second time this season that Lee Skinner has been named StatSheet SoCon Player of the Week. The runner-up this week is junior Lucas Troutman from Elon. Honorable mention goes to Mike Groselle, a senior from Citadel. The highest ranking player from Appalachian State was Jay Canty who finished eighth.

StatSheet SoCon Freshman of the Week: Elon's Tanner Samson

Tanner Samson averaged 31 minutes as a starter for Elon. He bested all SoCon freshmen in three pointers (2.5 per game). In a 69-63 loss to Davidson, Samson chalked up 11 points and 6 rebounds. Following that in an 80-66 win against North Carolina-Greensboro, he dialed up 10 points and 2 rebounds.

Amazingly, Tanner Samson has won the StatSheet SoCon Freshman of the Week 3 times. Raemond Robinson from Citadel grabs runner-up. Tim Williams from Samford receives honorable mention. The highest ranking freshman from Appalachian State was Michael Obacha who finished 5th.

StatSheet SoCon 6th Man of the Week: College of Charleston's Trent Wiedeman

Junior Trent Wiedeman, a 6-8 reserve forward, averaged 21 minutes over two games for the Cougars. In a close 55-50 win over Wofford, Wiedeman put up 7 points and 9 rebounds. During a strong 74-50 win over Furman, he racked up 13 points on 75% shooting.

This makes 3 times that Trent Wiedeman has won the StatSheet SoCon 6th Man of the Week award this season. Tyler Kalinoski, a sophomore guard from Davidson, is the runner up. Our own Tevin Baskin receives honorable mention. Appalachian State players have been named StatSheet SoCon Player of the Week 2 times this season.
