Hewitt Tagged Male Basketball Player of the Week For Second Time
HIGH POINT, N.C. – Brian Hewitt has been selected as the NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas men's basketball Player of the Week during week number four of the 2011-2012 season. This is the second time Hewitt receives this award as he also received it during week number two.

Hewitt and the Tornado embarked in only one game this past week but it proved to be a statement game that opened up their Conference Carolinas schedule. Led by Hewitt's 32 points, the Tornado knocked off preseason favorite Limestone College, 75-67. Hewitt hit 80 percent of all his shots from the field (12-for-15) and shot 77.7 percent from three-point range, going 7-for-9. Twenty-one of his 32 points were scored from distance.

If his offensive output was not enough Hewitt also added two steals, three assists, three boards (2 offensive) and made one block while only committing two fouls in 38 minutes played.

King is 6-2 overall in the season and 1-0 in league play. The Tornado host regional rival Milligan College tonight at 7:00 p.m. at the Student Center Complex (Bristol, Tenn.) to open their home schedule before hosting Augusta State on Saturday, Dec. 10 as part of a men's/women's doubleheader. The Lady will host Lincoln Memorial University, beginning at 5:00 p.m., with the men's team to follow in the nightcap.
