Tom Inungu of the Oglethorpe men's basketball team has been named this week's SAAC Male Athlete of the Week by his peers in the Oglethorpe Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
Inungu averaged 15.7 points per game over the course of the Petrels' three games, shooting 53.1 percent over the course of the week which featured wins over Toccoa Falls and Sage, as well as a loss to Manhattanville. He also made 80 percent of his free-throw attempts and collected 9.3 rebounds a game while accruing seven blocks. He scored 16 points on a perfect 7-for-7 from the field in the team's 79-53 win over Toccoa Falls on Nov. 13.
He and the rest of the Stormy Petrels head across town to Emory over Thanksgiving weekend for the Emory Thanksgiving Classic. They'll take on Randolph-Macon Saturday and No. 22 Maryville (Tennessee) Sunday with both games starting at 4 p.m.
