Pitt-Bradford men's basketball player Evan Greening was named the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Player of the Week, as announced by the league office Monday.

In two games against Juniata and Houghton, the senior forward averaged 21 points and 14 rebounds while pushing his streak of double-doubles to nine games.

Against Juniata, Greening finished with 23 points, 11 rebounds and a pair of assists, and he followed that up with 20 points, shooting 8-13 from the field, and 18 rebounds versus Houghton. The 18 boards matched his season-high against Mt. Aloysius on Dec. 17.

On the season, the Fredericksburg, Va., native is leading the AMCC in scoring (22.4) and rebounding (14.1). He also ranks among the NCAA Division III leaders in double-doubles and rebounding.

It marks the sixth time in his career Greening has received the conference's weekly award and second this season.
