BARBOURVILLE, Ky. -- Union forward Turrell Morris was named the Appalachian Athletic Conference' men's basketball Player of the Week on Monday.
The announcement marked the second straight week that the sophomore has earned the award and the fourth time he's picked it up on the 2010-11 season.

This past week, Morris paced the Bulldogs to a 1-1 week, leading the way in a losing effort at Bluefield (90-73) on Wednesday and in a victory at Montreat (85-67) on Saturday night.

Morris notched his 10th double-double of the season in the Bluefield loss, scoring a game-high 28 points, while snatching 10 rebounds. Against Montreat, Morris was once again the game's leading scorer pouring in 25 points, while collecting eight boards and three steals.

On the week, Morris shot 80.7 percent from the field, only missing on five attempts (21-26). He continues to lead the entire AAC in scoring, averaging 20.44 points per contest and rebounding with 9.67 boards per game.

Morris and the rest of the Bulldogs (9-9 overall and 3-1 in the AAC) return to action tonight at NCAA Division-II foe King. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
