Penn State Abington Guard is NEAC Student-Athlete of the Week
The Middlesex, N.J. resident was honored after a pair of outstanding performances this week.
Mike Colacci has been named the NEAC Men’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week.
Colacci led Abington to two conference victories after averaging 25.5 points per game while shooting nearly 45 percent (13-of-29) from the field and hitting all 19 of his free throw attempts.
The 6-foot guard scored a game- and season-high 31 points in Abington's 108-104 victory over Penn State Berks Wednesday, as he went 8-of-15 from the field and a perfect 13-of-13 from the free throw line, which included four clutch makes from the charity stripe in the final minutes to help secure the win.
Colacci would follow that up with a team-best 20 points to go along with three assists and two steals in an 85-74 victory over Gallaudet University Sunday, with the win placing Abington atop the NEAC South Division at 9-3 in conference play while helping them improve to 11-12 overall.
The Nittany Lions will have a chance to extend their lead over their rivals from Reading when they hit the floor on Wednesday at 8 p.m. for a game against Lancaster Bible on the road.
