LAKEPOINTE, Ga. – After helping lead the Lipscomb men’s basketball team to a 2-0 week on the road and a tie atop the ASUN Conference standings, sophomore center Rob Marberry has been named the ASUN Newcomer of the Week as announced by the league on Monday.
The transfer averaged 14 points per game last week and added 4.5 rebounds per outing as the Bisons won at FGCU and Stetson to improve to 9-2 in league play. He opened the week with a 9-point effort against the Eagles on Thursday night as Lipscomb moved into a tie with FGCU for first place. Marberry then posted a 19-point, 7-rebound, 5-assist effort at Stetson on Saturday in the win over the Hatters. He hit 8-of-10 from the field in 29 minutes of action and added a pair of blocks as Lipscomb clinched hosting a first-round game of the ASUN Championship on Feb. 27 at Allen Arena against an opponent yet to be determined.
The award is the second of the season for the Nashville, Tennessee native.
The Bisons return home on Thursday night hosting North Florida at 6:30 p.m. at Allen Arena. To purchase tickets visit http://www.LipscombTickets.com or call 615-966-HERD (4373).
