Indianapolis, Ind. -- For the second time this season and the fourth time in his career, Youngstown State senior Cameron Morse has been named the Horizon League Men's Basketball Player of the Week, the league announced on Monday.

Morse averaged 27 points and four assists while shooting 50 percent from the field (16-for-32), 47.6 percent from 3-point range (10-for-21), and went 12-for-12 from the free throw line as Youngstown State split a pair of road games.

Thursday versus third-place UIC, Morse scored a game-high 26 points and tied a career high with six 3-pointers. The Flint, Mich., native also dealt five assists in the setback.

Two nights later, Morse again recorded a game-high scoring mark, tallying 28 points on 8-of-17 shooting (4-10 3FG) while converting all eight of his attempts from the charity stripe as the Penguins defeated IUPUI.

Over the weekend, Morse also became just the seventh player in YSU history to score at least 1,800 career points. He now ranks sixth all-time with 1,829 points.
