Pearson wins third consecutive Player of the Week AwardWritten by Zach Davis | | firstname.lastname@example.org
For the third straight week, Rian Pearson has made his mark on the Mid-American Conference.
The sophomore guard earned MAC West Division Player of the Week honors in his third consecutive week as the Rockets split their games against Ohio and Bowling Green.
In the last three weeks, Toledo has won just two of six games yet Pearson’s performance has stuck out. He leads the conference in scoring (17.2 ppg) and is the only player in the league to rank in the top-10 in points, rebounds (8.4) and steals (1.7).
The Rockets (11-14, 3-8 MAC) travel to Muncie on Feb. 15 to take on Ball State (12-11, 4-7) at 7 p.m. Toledo lost the first matchup 70-68 in Savage Arena on Jan. 10 with a layup by Jerrod Jones as time expired.
