ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Eureka College junior Shea Feehan (Peoria, Ill./Notre Dame H.S.) and senior Hayley Reneau (Washington, Ill./Washington H.S./Illinois Central) have swept the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference men's and women's basketball Player of the Week awards, according to an announcement from the league office. Both players put up monster scoring efforts in helping their teams to unbeaten weeks against non-conference competition.
Feehan is a repeat honoree from the league after averaging 37.7 points in three non-conference victories last week. He broke Eureka's 60-year-old single-game scoring record with 49 points in the Red Devils' 103-89 victory at Knox on Sunday and also added a 28-point effort against Robert Morris-Peoria and a 36-point outburst at Monmouth. For the week, he shot 53 percent from the floor, made 12 three-pointers and went 31-for-34 at the free-throw line. In addition, Feehan, who has now been chosen SLIAC Player of the Week five times in his career, averaged 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game.
Reneau is the SLIAC Player of the Week for the second time in her two-year EC career after lifting the Red Devils to their largest win over Monmouth in more than two decades last Tuesday. She scored 41 points in EC's 91-78 triumph largely in part to six 3-pointers and a 9-for-10 performance from the foul line. Her point total was the second highest in single-game program history and just the fourth 40-point game by a Red Devil.
Following a women's game against Millikin on Monday, both Eureka squads will begin league play Wednesday in a doubleheader against Greenville at the Reagan Athletic Complex. The women will tip-off at 6 p.m. and the men will follow at 8 p.m.
