CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charleston Southern men’s basketball junior guard Phlandrous Fleming Jr. has been named the Big South Player of the Week and College Sports Madness Mid-Major Player of the Week, as announced Monday by the organizations.

The junior guard reclaimed the weekly accolades with a stat line of 28.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 7.5 assists, 3.5 blocks and 3.5 steals while scoring 20-plus for the ninth time over his past 10 games. Fleming began his week with a 25-point, nine-rebound effort in a 74-66 win over second-place Presbyterian before he secured his seventh double-double of the season Saturday in a 92-83 double-overtime win at Gardner-Webb.

Fleming nearly finished with a triple-double Saturday scoring 31 points, grabbing nine rebounds and dishing out 11 assists. His 31 points tied a career mark set in a win at High Point earlier in January while setting new career marks in blocks and assists.
