STATESBORO, Ga. – Kyle Doyle has been named Southern Conference Men’s Basketball Freshman of the Week after an impressive week which included his first collegiate starts. The native of Hephzibah, Ga. (who played at Josey High School) recorded a double-double against UNCG to close the week.
Against The Citadel, Doyle had six points and 12 rebounds to match the highest rebounding total for an Eagle this season. The forward got his first collegiate start in the 31-point Georgia Southern victory to break a three-game skid.
On Saturday night against the UNCG Spartans, Doyle had a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds. It was a new career-high scoring for the freshman who went 6-for-9 from the field in 30 minutes of action.
The Eagles are back on the road this weekend with a pair of games in the Carolina’s. GS faces Wofford on Thursday evening at 7 p.m. in the final trip to Benjamin Johnson Arena. The weekend continues on Saturday night with a trip to Elon. That game can be seen live on ESPN3.
