Freshman Gents Basketball Forward Ty has been named the Centenary Athlete of the Week.
Prince reached double figures in all three games this past week, helping the Gents to a 2-1 record. In a 75-69 won against East Texas Baptist Saturday, he scored a collegiate high 24 points, thanks in part to a 5-for-10 mark from beyond the arc. With the Gents down one late in the first half, he hit a pair of threes in the final two minutes to help give Centenary a three-point lead at the break. With the Gents clinging to a one-point lead late in the game, he hit a pair of threes to help Centenary seal the win.
In a 57-39 win against Dallas on Tuesday, Prince scored 11 points on 3-for-5 shooting from three.
In the 67-62 Gents' loss to Trinity Wednesday, Prince scored 10 points. However, he also added five assists against only one turnover.
Gents Basketball returns to action in Shreveport December 29 against Southwestern. Tip off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
