Freshman point guard Zavion Williams was named the Atlantic Sun Conference Newcomer of the Week Tuesday after averaging 13.0 points in Lipscomb's three wins last week.
Williams scored 28 points in Lipscomb's 90-87 victory against SIU Edwardsville on Tuesday. It was the highest tally by a Lipscomb freshman since 2002.
He earned a spot on the Cancun Challenge All-Tournament Team and added seven points against Sacred Heart helping the Bisons to the Mayan Division title.
Williams is the first Bison to receive the honor in the award's history. ETSU's Marcus Dubose was named the conference player of the week.
The Bisons open A-Sun action Thursday as they host Mercer at 7:15 p.m. in Allen Arena.
