Caleb Loggins was named the East Division Player of the Week by the American Southwest Conference after the final week of regular season play.
Loggins recorded the first triple-double in program history with 20 points, 11 rebounds and had a career-high 11 assists in a win over University of the Ozarks. The sophomore forward shot 17-of-21 from the floor (.810) over the final two regular season wins for 36 points and had 15 rebounds and 13 assists. Loggins is the first player in the ASC to record a triple-double this season and joins a short list of just nine players in conference history with a triple-double.

Loggins and LeTourneau will now host the ASC Tournament starting on Thursday and continuing through the championship game on Saturday.
