The Week 5 OVC Ball Unsung Hero is Donte Poole, Murray State


So as the weeks continue, I decided it was time for a change in the Unsung Hero award.

Instead of me simply picking the award, I will instead leave the final decision to you.

Starting now, you have 24 hours to pick this week’s Unsung Hero from 3 nominees.

The rules haven’t changed: it must be a player that hasn’t won any award, including the OVC hero award, over the season.

So first, here are this week’s award winners:

  • Player: Josh Terry (Austin Peay)
  • Newcomer: Tyler Stone (SEMO)
  • Freshman: Myles Taylor (UT Martin)

So, here are this week’s nominees, based on statistics from the past week:
