ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Eureka College junior guard Shea Feehan (Peoria, Ill./Notre Dame H.S.) maintained his stranglehold on the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week award and earned his third consecutive honor to begin the season, according to an announcement from the league office on Monday. Feehan averaged 37.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in leading the Red Devils to league wins over Greenville and MacMurray.
Feehan shot 59 percent (24-for-41) from the floor, 47 percent (8-for-17) from 3-point range and 95 percent (18-for-19) from the free throw line in the Red Devils' victories last week. He committed only one turnover in 27 minutes against Greenville's full-court "system" defensive pressure and his 40-point outburst in Saturday's win at MacMurray was his third career 40-point game. He has now won the SLIAC Player of the Week award six times overall.
Eureka is 6-1 through its first seven games for the second consecutive season and just the third time since the 1993-94 season. Additionally, the Red Devils are 2-0 in the SLIAC for the first time since the 2011-12 season. EC will try to add to its win total again on Saturday in a 3 p.m. SLIAC tip-off at Blackburn.
