ECAC/LEC Player of the Week

December 8th, 1997 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A Plymouth State College men’s basketball player was honored by the Little East Conference and the ECAC for his efforts in two Panther games last week.

Junior Adam DeChristopher (Brockton, MA), a 6’1″ point guard, was selected LEC Player of the Week and ECAC/AmeriSuites New England Player of the Week for his outstanding performance. He led the Panthers to impressive wins over New England power Salem State and LEC co-favorite Western Connecticut. He averaged 26 points, five rebounds, and four assists per game while shooting nearly 54 percent from the floor and 46.7 percent from three point range (7 of 15). In the 82-79 victory over Salem State, he tallied 28 points and four rebounds, and was 5-of- 11 on three-pointers, while scoring 24 points and grabbing six rebounds in the 84-75 win over Western Connecticut.

DeChristopher is ranked in just about every offensive category in the LEC. He is third in scoring
(18.8 ppg.) and three-point field goal percentage (.417), fourth in assists (4 apg.), fifth in field goal percentage (.523), sixth in free throw percentage (.826), and eighth in steals (2.5 spg.).

PANTHER NOTES: The Panthers have three additional players averaging double figures in points – senior Ace Elefteriadis (Belmont, MA) with 13.3 ppg, senior center Doug Stokes (Wyckoff, NJ) with 11.3 ppg, and junior Eric McQueen (Lawrence, MA) with 11.3 ppg…..McQueen came off of the bench to score 12 points against Salem State. He is shooting 50 percent from the field, averages three rebounds per game and is ranked ninth in the LEC in free throw percentage (.778)…..Stokes, a transfer from the College of New Jersey, has fit into PSC’s game plan quite well as he finds himself ranked eighth in the LEC with 7.8 rebounds per game, and 11th in free throw percentage (.750)….. Elefteriadis returned from a sub-par performance against Salem State to post 17 points and seven rebounds against Western Connecticut. He ranks first on the team and seventh in the LEC in rebounds with eight per game…..Senior Seth Peloso (Rye, NH) can also be found among the LEC leaders, as he ranks fourth in steals with 3.5 per game, as well as averaging 7.3 points and 2.3 rebounds per game……DeChristopher enters the week just 12 points shy of becoming the 14th man in PSC history to reach the 1,000-point milestone……After a game Monday night (Dec. 8) at Rivier College, PSC wraps up competition for the semester with an LEC battle Saturday (Dec. 13) against Rhode Island College at Foley Gymnasium (4:00 p.m.).
