Belmont's Ian Clark has earned the StatSheet Ohio Valley Player of the Week for the week ending January 21st. Chris Horton from Austin Peay has won StatSheet's Ohio Valley Freshman of the Week. And last but not least, Belmont's Brandon Baker has taken StatSheet's Ohio Valley 6th Man of the Week. Clark put up a strong showing in shooting (50%), rebounding (6.5 per game), and assists (3.5 per game). The Belmont senior played well in wins versus Eastern Kentucky and Tennessee State.

Clark led the Bruins in scoring with 22 points and added 3 steals in an 83-76 win against Eastern Kentucky. He followed that up with a team-leading 22 points and 6 rebounds in a 78-66 victory against Tennessee State.

This is one of three StatSheet Ohio Valley Player of the Week awards for Ian Clark. The runner-up this week is senior Mike DiNunno from Eastern Kentucky. Honorable mention goes to Blake Jenkins, a junior from Belmont. Jerome Jones, who finished 12th, was the highest ranking player from SIU Edwardsville.

StatSheet Ohio Valley Freshman of the Week: Austin Peay's Chris Horton

Chris Horton averaged 22 minutes of playing time while starting both games for Austin Peay. His average in blocked shots (3.5 per game) led all Ohio Valley freshmen. In a 66-53 loss to SIU Edwardsville, Horton led all rebounding for the Governors with 6 and added 7 blocked shots. In a 77-67 loss to Eastern Illinois, he totaled 3 points and 3 rebounds.

This is a repeat honor for Chris Horton, making it the second time he has won StatSheet Ohio Valley Freshman of the Week. Anthony Morse from Tennessee Tech gets runner-up. B.J. McLaughlin from Tennessee-Martin takes honorable mention.

StatSheet Ohio Valley 6th Man of the Week: Belmont's Brandon Baker

This is the first StatSheet Ohio Valley 6th Man of the Week honor for Brandon Baker. Our own Mark Yelovich is the runner up. Timmy Knipp, a sophomore guard from Eastern Kentucky, receives honorable mention. SIU Edwardsville has yet to win StatSheet Ohio Valley Player of the Week.
