Tuesday, December 2, 2003
NASHVILLE --- Tennessee State basketball player Bruce Price's first week of college basketball has become even more memorable as the freshman guard has been honored as the Ohio Valley Conference Rookie of the Week. Price averaged 11.5 points and five assists in his first two games as a collegiate player. He scored 14 points and had six assists in TSU's season-opening win over Trevecca. The Minneapolis, Minn. product injured a shoulder in the final seconds of the Trevecca game, but bounced back to play 31 points and tally nine points and record six steals in the Tigers' game at Southeastern Conference member Tennessee on Friday night. The OVC office in Brentwood announced the award late Monday afternoon.
