ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- Eureka College junior guard Shea Feehan (Peoria, Ill./Notre Dame H.S.) is the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference's pick for its first men's basketball Player of the Week award in 2017-18, the league office announced Monday. Feehan, who has now was the league's weekly award four times, averaged 27.0 points for the Red Devils in two non-conference games last week.
Feehan kicked off his third collegiate season last Wednesday with 34 points in just 26 minutes of work in the Red Devils' 117-52 drubbing of Robert Morris-Springfield at Christine Bonati Bollwinkle Arena. He was 11-for-17 from the field, including a 6-for-10 showing from 3-point range, and added four rebounds and three steals. He followed that effort with 20 points at Division I Central Michigan Saturday. Feehan, who entered the season as the most accurate free throw shooter in Eureka men's basketball history, finished the week 12-for-12 from the foul line.
Feehan will enter Tuesday's game against Robert Morris-Peoria with 982 career points, 18 shy of becoming Eureka's 21st 1,000-point scorer of the Division III era. Feehan, whose career scoring average of 25.2 points per game is the highest in program history, will be playing his 40th collegiate game Tuesday against the Eagles.
