Clarksville, TN – Junior center Chris Horton, of the Austin Peay State University men’s basketball team, has been named the Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week.
In perhaps the best week of a stellar career, Horton averaged 23.0 points – equaling his career-best with 23 points in both games – alongside 14.5 boards and 2.5 blocks for the Govs. The 6-9 big man shot 50 percent from the floor (14-for-28) and 72 percent (18-for-25) from the free-throw line.
Against Morehead State, Horton became the first Gov since Derek Wright in 2008 to get to the free-throw line 20 times in a game – he hit 15 of those on the way to a 23-point, 11-rebound night against the Eagles.
