OU's Hamilton Named Beyond the Arc's Player of the Week

Oakland's Reggie Hamilton was named Beyond the Arc's National Player of the Week for his performance in the win at Valparaiso. The senior scored 41 points in the victory.

He made 14-24 shots from the floor, hitting five threes and added four assists, four steals and three rebounds. More impressive, however, was the fact that the Grizzlies were down by as much as 17 points in the second half, but Hamilton lead the charge back. He scored the first 12 points during an 17-1 run that trimmed the lead to 61-60 and kept Oakland in the game. It was Hamilton’s final shot of the game that truly made the difference, as he went the length of the court in the final five seconds and banked in a runner as time expired.
