CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- The Penn State University Athletic Conference (PSUAC) has named Lloyd Irons, a freshman guard from Penn State Lehigh Valley, as this week's PSUAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week. Irons is currently ranked second in the PSUAC for points per game with 21.4, and he is also ranked second in rebounds per game with 10.4.
“A player of Lloyd’s ability is such a positive asset to our young team. Hopefully, his story and experience so far will inspire others to come play basketball for our campus,” said Rich Fatzinger, athletic director at Penn State Lehigh Valley.
Men’s basketball coach Anthony Ross said he is extremely proud of what Irons has been able to accomplish thus far in the season, but he still has “a lot more to go to accomplish his personal goals.”
With only two games left in December, Penn State Lehigh Valley will play the Fayette campus Dec. 22 and face the DuBois campus Dec. 23. Both of these are away games.
Two other Penn State Lehigh Valley athletes also received awards this week. Allyson Niemi, a freshman at the campus, was named First Team All-Conference in the 2012 PSUAC Tennis All-Conference Honors. Junior Mo James also received an Honorable Mention in the same conference.
