Atlanta, Ga. - After an emotional win over Lee University on Saturday night, Shorter College Hawks' men's basketball star Tomas Pranciliauskas was named the Southern States Athletic Conference Player of the Week, for the week ending Jan. 18.

Pranciliauskas averaged 16 points in two road wins last week, with 18 coming against Reinhardt College (which the Hawks won 93-66) and 14 against 20th-ranked Lee University (Hawks won 57-56). The win against Lee was Shorter's first over the Flames since Dec. 15, 2005.

Additionally, Pranciliauskas had six rebounds, six assists, one block and two steals in the game. For the week, he shot 10-for-19 from the field (52.6%), 5-for-11 from beyond the arc (45.5%) and 7-for-9 on free throws.

The Hawks continue their seven-game road trip this weekend - on a four-game winning streak - on Thursday as they make the cross-town visit to rival Berry College for a 8 p.m. tip-off at the Cage Center.
