OXFORD, OH (FOX19) - Miami University senior forward Will Felder was named the Mid-American Conference East Division Co-Player of the Week, the conference office announced this morning.
Felder played a pivotal role in two Miami victories last week, as the RedHawks seized an 86-80 triumph over Central Michigan on Wednesday, and another on Saturday against Bowling Green at 70-65.
Leading all other players with 22 points, Felder also landed a career-high-tying 13 rebounds against Central Michigan, and shot 76.9 percent from the field. And despite playing 19 minutes at Bowling Green, Felder tallied 12 points as a contributor to the RedHawks' three-game victory streak.
This is the first MAC Player of the Week honor Felder has received and the first of the season for the RedHawks. Felder shared East Division honors with Akron's Demetrius Treadwell.
