UMHB MEN'S BASKETBALL PLAYER CLAIMS CONFERENCE HONOR

Belton, TX – University of Mary Hardin-Baylor men's basketball player Thomas Orr has been named American Southwest Conference West Division Player of the Week for the week ending January 13th. Orr is the third UMHB basketball player to earn ASC Player of the Week honors this season, joining Brian Todd and Kitrick Bell.

Orr, a senior wing from Hutto High School, led the Cru in scoring in a pair of crucial West Division wins last week, averaging 24.5 points per game during the week. Orr poured in 25 points, including the game-winning free-throws in a 98-95 victory over Concordia Texas to open the week. He then scored 24 in a win over Hardin-Simmons, with 12 of those coming in the final minutes of the first half to help UMHB take control of the game. Orr added four rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots and a steal while shooting 53 percent from the field and hitting nine three-pointers. His play helped the Cru break a three-way tie for first-place to take over sole possession of the lead in the ASC West Division.

The UMHB men are currently 12-3 overall and 8-1 in ASC play on the season. The Cru will play its next six games on the road, starting with a 7:30 PM tip-off at Texas Lutheran University Thursday night in Seguin.
