Career-Best Weeks Land Day, Masterson & Marberry @ASUNMBB Accolades

LakePoint, Ga. - Career outings guided Kennesaw State's Nick Masterson, Lipscomb's Rob Marberry & North Florida's Trip Day to earn their first career ASUN Conference Men's Basketball weekly honors, announced Monday by the league office.

KSU's Masterson earned his first ASUN Player of the Week honor after the senior guard posted a perfect three-point shooting performance against North Florida finishing 6-of-6 from deep to tie his career-high with 28 points. He followed with 20 points with three trifectas in a blowout victory against Jacksonville to propel the Owls into a tie for fourth place in the ASUN. Masterson added eight rebounds and eight assists on the week with only one turnover.

After tallying 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting in limited minutes during Lipscomb's win vs. Jacksonville, Marberry put on a low-post show against North Florida with a career-high 39 points on 18 made field goals. The junior forward was unstoppable in the post missing only six shots vs. UNF and eight for the entire week. Marberry tallied 27 of his 39 points in the second half vs. the Ospreys as he grabbed five rebounds in the 1-point comeback victory for the Bisons. Lipscomb now sits alone in second place in the ASUN after the 2-0 week.

Freshman Trip Day averaged 19 PPG in two league contests as he opened with a 16-point performance against Kennesaw State with a 7-of-10 shooting effort in 21 minutes of play coming off the bench. Against Lipscomb, Day shined from deep making five of his eight attempts en route to a career-high 22 points. He added four assists and two blocks against the Bisons.
