HANCOCK, Mich. (WLUC) – Finlandia University junior Dylan Underwood has been named ACAA Player of the Week for Nov. 19, as released by the league office. Members of the ACAA are Finlandia, Mills, Mount Mary, Pine Manor, Pratt Institute, SUNY Delhi and Valley Forge.
This is the second time Underwood has won the award.
Underwood had a very strong week for the Lions over two games. Against Lakeland (Nov. 12) he just missed having a triple double as he had 25 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists with four steals and no turnovers in 39 minutes.
Underwood scored 25 points again, this time vs. Lawrence (Nov. 16) and added six rebounds, five assists and three steals. For the week, 16 of his 20 rebounds were defensive.
“While Dylan’s (Underwood) performance on the court has earned him this honor, he embodies the spirit of what a student-athlete should be. He’s a presidential scholar, as an upper classman, he has stepped up on the court and takes seriously his responsibilities as a role model for all Finlandia student-athletes,” says Coach Sam Casey
