Patrick Miller from Tennessee State has won StatSheet's Ohio Valley Player of the Week for December 31st. Chris Horton from Austin Peay has won StatSheet's Ohio Valley Freshman of the Week. And last but certainly not least, Morehead State's Maurice Lewis-Briggs has taken StatSheet's Ohio Valley 6th Man of the Week.
Miller led the all of the Ohio Valley in scoring (28.0 pts per game) and free throws (11.0 per game). He also had great stats in rebounding (4 per game), shooting (90%), and three pointers (3 per game). The Tennessee State junior played well for the Tigers in a win against Eastern Illinois.
