ECAC/LEC Player of the Week

December 15th, 1997 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – For the second consecutive week, the point guard on the Plymouth State College men’s basketball team has received the top weekly honor from the Little East Conference and the Eastern College Athletic Conference.

Junior Adam DeChristopher (Brockton, MA), a 6’1″ guard, was selected ECAC New England and LEC Player of the Week after a torrid week for the Panthers. He shot a blistering 75 percent from the field (18-for-24) in a pair of PSC victories, averaging 24.5 points and connecting on 5-of-9 three-point shots. He added five rebounds, five assists and three steals as the Panthers knocked off Rivier College, 83-64, and Rhode Island College, 106-82.

In addition, DeChristopher became the 14th Panther male to score 1,000 career points last Monday when he reached the milestone in the Rivier game, and he hits the holiday break with 1,037 points. DeChristopher leads the LEC in scoring (20.7 ppg) and field goal percentage (.603) and ranks second in three-point field goal percentage (.455) and free throw percentage (.844). He is also tied for third in assists (3.5 apg) and tied for ninth in steals (2.2 spg).

DeChristopher has helped PSC to a perfect 6-0 start this season, and a 2-0 mark in the LEC. The Panthers are now idle for final exams and the holidays before returning to action Dec. 29-30 at the Land of Magic Classic in Daytona Beach, Fla. PSC will face Nebraska Wesleyan and RPI in the tournament, battling a Nebraska Wesleyan squad that advanced to the Division III national championship game last season.

PANTHER NOTES: The Panthers have three other players averaging double figures in points – senior forward Ace Elefteriadis (Belmont, MA) with 12.0 ppg, junior guard Eric McQueen (Lawrence, MA) with 11.3 ppg, and senior center Doug Stokes (Wyckoff, NJ) with 10.8 ppg….In addition to his scoring average, Elefteriadis is ranked eighth in 3-PT FG percentage (.333) and ninth in rebounding (7.2 rpg)….Elefteriadis’ fellow senior captain, Seth Peloso (Rye, NH) is third in the conference in steals (3.2 spg) and fifth in 3-PT FG percentage (.385), while averaging 8.2 points an outing…..Stokes, a transfer from the College of New Jersey, has been a welcome addition to the Panthers. He averages 6.5 recounds a contest and is fifth in the conference in FT percentage (.792)….PSC leads the LEC in scoring (94.7 ppg) and ranks second in FG percentage (.454), FT percentage (.721) and scoring margin (+23.4).
