Farmer honored by NCAC

Denison senior Larry Farmer was selected North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week after a helping the Big Red post a 2-1 mark last week.

Farmer led DU to road victories over Capital and Hiram last week by scoring 18 points in each contest.  The senior, who is averaging 12 points and eight rebounds per game this season, grabbed a career-high 14 boards in DU's league victory over the Terriers.

In the three games last week, Farmer averaged 14.3 points and eight rebounds a game.  He also had nine assists, four steals and two blocks.  Additionally, Farmer shot 67 percent (16-for-24) from the field, 50 percent (3-for-6) from behind the arc, and drained all eight attempts from the charity stripe.

Denison returns to the court this weekend with games at Kalamazoo and Albion.  Saturday's game at Kalamazoo is scheduled for 4 p.m., while Sunday's tip-off at Albion is slated for 3 p.m.
