CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Senior forward Drake Reed, who averaged 33.5 points and 12.5 rebounds in Austin Peay State University’s two basketball games last weekend, has been named Ohio Valley Conference Co-Player of the Week.

Reed shared the award with UT Martin’s Lester Hudson.

The 6-5 Reed enjoyed his career’s best weekend of performances in the Govs 87-82 overtime loss to UT Martin and the Govs’ 83-80 win against Murray State. In fact, the nation’s No. 4 scoring forward (21 ppg) scored 30 points in consecutive games for the first time in his career.

In the Govs’ loss to UT Martin, Reed scored 35 points—the second most in his career, going 11 of 16 from the floor.

He also grabbed 18 rebounds, the most by a Gov since the 1993-94 season, while blocking a career-best five shots.

He came right back against Murray State to scored 32 points on 12-of-16 shooting. He also had seven rebounds and four more blocked shots.

For the weekend, Reed was 23 of 32 from the floor for an incredible 72 percent, including 5-of-9 from three-point range. The Clarksville native knocked down a career-high three three-pointers against the Skyhawks.
