So it’s only Week 4, but this week’s award winners from the OVC are all repeats

Co-Player: Isaiah Canaan (Murray)
Co-Player: Jeremy Granger (EIU)
Newcomer: Tyler Stone (SEMO)
Freshman: Eric Stutz (EKU)

And that’s good news for me, because it means my pool of players isn’t getting any smaller. But I’ve noticed something.

Where are the Golden Eagles?

I never would have guessed that 4 weeks into the season, not a single Tennessee Tech player would have won a weekly award.

So I’m picking not 1, but two Golden Eagles as my Unsung Heroes of the week: Jud Dillard and Kevin Murphy.

Right now, these two players are the lifeblood of the Golden Eagles, averaging 35 points and 14 rebounds a game between them. Dillard leads the OVC in rebounding, and Murphy is second in the conference in scoring, and plays the most minutes per game in the OVC.

Seriously, a whole month, and we’ve forgotten about these two?

Something tells me the same mistakes won’t be made when conference play starts later this month. Because if they are, Tennessee Tech is going to roll through the competition.
