    JONESBORO, Ark. (11/21/23) – After a stellar two-game stint last week, Arkansas State’s Freddy Hicks earned Sun Belt Conference men’s basketball Player of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday.

    Hicks averaged 17.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists in the Red Wolves’ contests against Alcorn State (Nov. 14) and at Iowa (Nov. 17), eclipsing the 1,000-point mark for his career with a 21-point output against the Hawkeyes. He shot 46.2 percent (12-26) from the field, including an even 50 percent (4-8) from 3-point range, while going 7-for-11 (.636) from the free-throw line.

    Tuesday’s honor marks A-State’s first Player of the Week since Jan. 25, 2022. It also is Hicks’ first weekly award as a Red Wolf, but the second in his career, as he earned WAC Player of the Week laurels last season at Tarleton State.

    The Searcy, Ark., native scored 14 points while grabbing six rebounds and tallying four assists in A-State’s win over the Braves in the team’s home opener, connecting on 5-of-8 from the floor and converting 3-for-4 at the charity stripe. In Friday’s battle in Iowa City, Hicks led the Scarlet and Black with 21 points, making 7-of-18 from the field and 3-for-4 from distance. He added nine boards and a career-high seven dimes to go along with a block and a steal.
