Senior guard C.J. Reed of Georgia Southern University’s men’s basketball team was named Southern Conference Player of the Week this week by CollegeSportsMadness.com.

Reed is the starting senior point guard for the Eagles. Reed might be new to GSU this year, but he has posted some high numbers for the Eagles.

Reed has excelled this season on offense as well as defense. He is the second leading scorer with a total of 223 points, 11.7 points per game and has posted 62 assists for the Eagles. Reed has also been very active this season on defense with 55 rebounds and 16 steals.

One of the biggest games this season for Reed was the victory over Virginia Tech. He posted his GSU career-high of 22 points and also made five out of nine from behind the arc that night. Although the University of Alabama at Birmingham defeated the Eagles, Reed scored another 22 points during this game and made four out of seven shots from behind the arc.

The Southern Conference Player of the Week award is not the only acknowledgment Reed has received this season. After his game against Virginia Tech, he was awarded the Southern Conference Player of the Week, as well as the Mid-Major Player of the Week.

The Eagles have three away conference games coming up in the next two weeks. To start it off, GSU will face Appalachian State University tonight at 7.
