Central State senior Masceo Harmon has been named the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Athlete of the Week following the first weekend of the 2014-15 season.
Harmon, a 5'8 point guard from Memphis, TN, led the Marauders to a 1-1 record during this past weekend's GLIAC vs. G-MAC Challenge against Wayne State University and Tiffin University.
In Friday's 69-68 win over Wayne State University, Harmon stepped up after spraining his ankle in the first half, scoring 14 of his game-high 18 points in the second stanza. Harmon also had 7 rebounds, 3 steals and was 7 of 15 from the field. "Masceo took over the game in the second half while dealing with a bad ankle. It was very heroic," CSU head coach Joseph Price said. "He really changed the game."
In Saturday's 76-75 loss to tournament host Tiffin University, Harmon finished with a game-high 20 points along with 2 assists, 3 steals and 6 rebounds. He went 6 for 9 from the field and a perfect 7 of 7 from the free throw line.
“It is great to perform well,” Harmon said. “I just hope to keep getting better and help my team reach our goal. We have another big game this week and we are looking forward to it.”
Harmon and the Marauders travel to play Ashland University on Friday at 7:30 pm.
