JONESBORO, Ark. (12/17/18) – Arkansas State men’s basketball senior guard Ty Cockfield II was named Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
Cockfield carried A-State to a double-overtime win over Florida Atlantic Friday night. He poured in a season-high 34 points, tied for the highest scoring total by a SBC athlete this season. He knocked down 14-of-15 at the charity stripe, including 5-of-6 in the second overtime to help A-State move to 3-0 on the home floor this year. The 34-point outing saw him secure his fourth career 30-point scoring performance, second this season, while also having 20-plus points in six-straight games. His six-straight 20-point outings are the most since J.J. Montgomery had seven-straight during the 2003-04 season.
Cockfield is the first A-State player to earn Sun Belt Conference weekly honors since Donte Thomas on November 22, 2016.
A-State hosts Missouri State Tuesday at First National Bank Arena. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. For the latest on A-State men’s basketball, follow the Red Wolves on Twitter @AStateMB, at Facebook.com/AStateMB and on Instagram at ‘AStateMB’.
