    McGhee Earns 6th Career ASUN Player of the Week Honor

    Nov 28, 2022 | Lynchburg Va | Men's Basketball

    ASUN Release

    Liberty’s Darius McGhee earned his sixth career ASUN Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week honor, it was announced on Monday evening by the league office.

    McGhee’s award, his first of the 2022-23 campaign, comes after the redshirt senior averaged 22.3 points in three games last week. The guard was named to the 2022 Cancun Challenge All-Tournament team and also eclipsed the 2,000-point mark for his career in Saturday’s 80-53 home win over Delaware State.

    McGhee’s achieved the milestone with a three-pointer at the 5:16 mark of the first half and against the DSU Hornets and finished the contest with a game-high 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting and 5-of-8 shooting from three-point territory. McGhee (2,012 points) is the fifth active player in Division I men’s basketball to get to 2,000 career points, and he is the fourth player in school history to reach the plateau.

    In two games in Cancun versus Northwestern and Bradley, McGhee averaged 22.0 ppg and knocked down nine total threes.

    McGhee totaled five steals (1.7 spg) over the three-game week and shot 90 percent (9-of-10) from the foul line. In Liberty’s 55-44 triumph over Bradley last Wednesday, he finished with a game-high 21 points and hit five three-pointers.

    The Roxboro, N.C. native has five straight 20-plus point games. McGhee is currently first in the country in three-pointers per game (4.14) and total three-point field goals made (29) and ranks 12th in total points (148) and 15th in points per game (21.1).

    McGhee and the Flames (4-3) will be back in action on Friday evening against the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks (2-4). Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. and can also been seen on ESPN+.
