Richards named Mid-Major Player of the Week by

This makes two weeks in a row that Richards gets national player of the week for mid-majors. Jason is really becoming a great player, no doubt about it. Congratulations, Jason!

week ending December 24, 2006


Appalachian State’s duo of Donte Minter and D.J. Thompson made a strong case for weekly honors, but the player of the week recognition goes to another Southern Conference performer in Davidson’s Jason Richards. Last week the 6-foot-2 junior guard shared the honors with New Orleans’ Bo McCalebb, but this week it is all Richards. He had a career-high 25 points to help beat host Arizona State in the championship game of the ASU Holiday Classic. Richards, who scored 18 points and dished out eight assists the day before, was named the tournament MVP. The junior connected on 8-of-13 shots from the floor, including 4-of-5 from behind the arc, while playing all but one minute in the game.
