Brentwood, Tenn. --- Tennessee State’s men’s basketball redshirt junior Donte Fitzpatrick-Drosey earned Ohio Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week after his standout performance against North Carolina A&T, as announced Monday by the league office.
Fitzpatrick-Dorsey continued his streak of leading the Tigers in scoring for the second game in-a-row, and the fifth time this season, by scoring 23 points versus North Carolina A&T, adding a season-high seven boards. The Ole Miss transfer notched 13 points in the first half, including a game-tying layup before the expiration of the first period. The Memphis native shot 7-of-12 from the field, 7-of-8 from the charity stripe and 2-of-3 from three-point distance marking his best shooting night of the season.
