Follow @ASUNMBB

ATLANTA, Ga. - FGCU's Schadrac Casimir and North Florida's Christian Agnew shared this week's ASUN Conference Men's Basketball Player and Newcomer of the Week honors, as announced by the league office on Monday.

Casimir earns his first career Player of the Week honor, while garnering his second Newcomer of the Week accolade. The senior guard led FGCU to its first ASUN Conference win of the year, as the Eagles took down Kennesaw State on the road, 72-59. Casimir poured in a season-high 34 points on 9-15 shooting. He was 6-10 from three-point land and a spotless 10-10 from the charity stripe, which was a season-high. Casimir chipped in with a season-high in rebounds with seven and two assists. This season, he leads the Eagles in scoring at 12.9 PPG, which ranks ninth in the ASUN. He also ranks third in the ASUN in three-point shooting at 48.9 percent, second in free-throw percentage at 89.6 percent. Casimir and FGCU look to pick up its second win in a row when they host Stetson on Monday night.

Agnew garners North Alabama's first-ever Player of the Week and his first career Newcomer of the Week honor, after leading the Lions to a 2-0 week last week. In UNA's midweek victory at Jacksonville, Agnew scored a career-high 26 points on a 11-17 shooting and 4-7 from three-point land. He followed that performance up with some heroics, as he sank a mid-court buzzer-beater to lift North Alabama past Stetson on Saturday. This season, he's averaging 10.3 PPG, but has raised his play in conference action, as he's scoring 13.4 PPG. In ASUN play, the Detroit native ranks fourth in total FGs, sixth in total steals and ninth in total points. Agnew and the Lions are 4-1 in ASUN play in just their first year as Division I. North Alabama looks to extend its win streak to five when they travel to fellow ASUN newcomer, Liberty on Monday night.
