Ryan wins 5th MVC player of the week honor

For the first time this season and the fifth time in his career, Evansville senior Colt Ryan was named Player of the Week by the Missouri Valley Conference on Monday.

Ryan is wrapping up his career in style and amped it up in a big way in the last two games, posting a total of 52 points to go along with 14 rebounds.

In the home victory over Illinois State, the Batesville, Ind. product tallied a game-high 31 points on a 9-18 night from the floor.  He finished with four 3-pointers, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals.

He helped the Aces to their third road win of the season on Saturday with his 21-point outing at Wright State.  Ryan was 8-of-19 while posting a pair of treys.  For the second game in a row, Ryan hauled in seven rebounds while dishing out a pair of assists.

Just as impressive was his climb up the MVC free throw list last week.  After starting the week with 537, Ryan finished with 549 and moved into the top five in MVC history, jumping four players, including Larry Bird.

Ryan is the third UE player honored by the league this season.  D.J. Balentine earned Newcomer of the Week honors in December while Troy Taylor was named Co-Player of the Week later that month following his triple-double at Creighton.
