CHICKASHA – After scoring his eighth and ninth double doubles of the season in two road games, Kyle Hunt was named the Sooner Athletic Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season.

The 6-foot-10 forward went 69 percent from the field and 87.5 percent from the line last week. He also had three assists, four blocks and two steals for the week.

Hunt is the Drovers’ leading scorer and averages 18 points a game. He also leads the team in rebounds, averaging more than 10 a game, and blocks, with 34 total on the season.

Hunt is currently first in the conference and 11th nationally in total rebounds with 174. He is also second in the conference in blocks per game (2) and field goal percentage (6.12) and third in scoring per game.
