LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- The Covenant College athletics scene has
dwindled down to one remaining sport for the fall, 2010 semester; basketball. Thus, it is only appropriate that this week's players of the week come from the men's and women's basketball teams in the form of juniors Sam Bowman and Margaret Cross.
Bowman receives the honor after his stellar performance on the road at LaGrange College helped the Scots down the Panthers for their first win of the season. Bowman posted a game-high 23 points and a team-high 14 rebounds in the 56-48 winning effort, while also contributing with two blocks and a steal. In the Scots second game that week, Sam contributed in all aspects of the game with 10 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks, and 2 steals.
On the same night, the Lady Scots Margaret Cross also turned in a solid performance against LaGrange. Although it was in a losing effort, her 20 points led all players and helped Covenant take a 34-33 lead into the half. She also posted two assists and a steal in the game.
