The Citadel's Mike Groselle has been named the Southern Conference Player of the Week by the league office and College Sports Madness. Groselle averaged 19.0 points and 11.5 rebounds per game last week as the Bulldogs went 1-1 at the All-Military Classic in Charleston, S.C.
It marks the second time in Groselle's career that he has earned SoCon Player of the Week honors from the league and College Sports Madness, both coming last season on the week of Nov. 15.
The senior center scored 21 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in the Bulldogs' 84-76 victory over VMI. It was Groselle's 23rd career double-double. He followed that performance with 17 points and eight rebounds against Air Force as the Falcons held on for a 77-70 victory.
The Plano, Texas, native shot 68 percent from the field (15-22) and was 8-for-10 from the free throw line. Groselle added three assists and two steals and was named to the All-Military Classic all-tournament team for his efforts.
The Citadel (1-1) returns to action Wednesday when the Bulldogs host Montreat College at 7:05.
