Anthony Beane, a sophomore at SIU who hails from Normal, was named Missouri Valley Conference men’s basketball Player of the Week this week. He averaged 24.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.5 steals in wins over Bradley and Evansville. In those two efforts Beane shot 16-of-33 (.485) from the field and 14-of-17 (.824) from the free throw line. Culminating a 22 point performance, Beane made two shots from the charity stripe that helped to seal the victory over Evansville. Along with Doug McDermott in the 2013 season, Beane is now one of only two players since 1987-88 to be named MVC Player of the Week three times in a single month.
