BRISTOL, Tenn. – Following a stellar week, King University men's basketball player Hunter LeVeau was selected Conference Carolinas Men's Basketball Player of the Week. LeVeau 27.5 points per game and shot better than 50.0 percent from the floor a week ago for the Tornado.

LeVeau led the way for King last week, averaging 27.5 points per game and shooting 54.8 percent from the floor, including 52.6 from three-point range in two contests for King. He also connected on all 11 of his free throw attempts and averaged 8.0 rebounds per contest.

The senior started the week by matching his career-high with 29 points in a 71-67 win over North Greenville University in the conference opener. It marked the second straight game, and second time in four days he scored 29 points, setting his career-high the Saturday prior against Lander University. In the come-from-behind win over North Greenville, LeVeau shot 66.7 percent from the floor and 80.0 percent from three while making all nine of his free throw attempts. In the contest he also matched a career-high with 11 rebounds for his fourth career double-double and first of the season.

The Johnson City, Tenn., native followed that with 26 points at Clayton State on Saturday, shooting 6-for-14 from three-point range. This marks the first time LeVeau has been selected Conference Carolinas Player of the Week this season and the third time in his career.

LeVeau and the Tornado are in action again on Tuesday when they travel to Erskine College for a Conference Carolinas matchup. Tipoff from Due West, S.C. is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
