Colonel junior guard Glenn Cosey Monday was named the Adidas Ohio Valley Conference Co-Newcomer of the Week.
This is the second straight week, and third time this season that the Flint Michigan native has received the league award.
Cosey was honored for his performances last week in the undefeated Colonels’ wins in their first two road games of the season at North Carolina Central and Chattanooga.
Cosey had 11 points, seven rebounds, four assists and four steals in the Dec. 4 game at North Carolina Central. His late-game back-to-back three pointers extended a four point Colonel lead to 10 to help seal the victory.
Cosey followed up that performance with an EKU career-high 23 points in the win over the Mocs on Dec. 8. He also had a team-high six rebounds, five assists and three steals against Chattanooga and his six three pointers in the game were just one shy of tying the school record.
In the two games combined, Cosey averaged 17 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 3.5 steals, while shooting 44 percent from both the field and the three point line.
Through nine games, Cosey is the Colonels’ leading scorer at 17.7 points per game. He is averaging 3.4 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game and leads the team in steals with 20, while averaging playing a team-high 35.9 minutes per game.
With no games this week because of finals, the Colonels will try to extend their nine-game season opening winning streak to 10 when they take on No. 10 Illinois at 6 p.m. Sunday in Champagne Ill.
EKU senior Mike DiNunno was recently named Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Week by CollegeSportsMadness.com for his performances in the Colonel’s two road victories last week.
Against North Carolina Central, DiNunno had a game-high 21 points, shooting 7-12 from the field, including 4-6 from behind the three point line.
In the win over Chattanooga Saturday, DiNunno had 12 points, six assists, three rebounds and two steals.
In the two games, DiNunno averaged 16.5 points, 3.5 assists, two steals and 1.5 rebounds, while shooting 52 percent from the field and 50 percent from three-point range.
