Via Southeastern Oklahoma State Athletics
DURANT, Okla. - Following a record-setting performance and a pair of big conference victories, Southeastern's Brennen Burns has picked up Great American Conference Player of the Week honors.
Burns closed out his weekend by smashing the school and GAC records for assists in a game, dishing out 19 in the win over Harding, passing Adam Dworsky's mark of 16 which held the top mark for SE and the GAC.
His 19 is also the most in a single game by a D2 player since 2020.
He would average a double-double on the weekend, putting up 10.0 ppg and handing out 12.0 assists per outing.
Burns helped lift Southeastern to a big conference win on Thursday as the team moved into a tie for the top spot in the league with a victory over Arkansas Tech which saw him put up 16 points and hand out five assists.
Southeastern will be back in action on Feb. 8 with a trip to Monticello, Ark., to take on Arkansas-Monticello.
