Funk Earns Second Straight Player of the Week Honors
For the second straight week, Tommy Funk of the Army West Point Men's Basketball team was named the Patriot League Player of the Week.
It marks the first time a Cadet received back-to-back player of the week praise from the league since Kyle Wilson '16 did so during the 2014-15 campaign.
Funk guided the Black Knights to a 2-0 week against two of the top-three defenses in the league. In two outings, he averaged 22.5 points, 8.5 assists and 2.5 rebounds per contest while posting an 8.5 assist-to-turnover ratio. He shot 52 percent from the field and 100 percent from the charity stripe.
The Warrington, Pa., native opened the week with a double-double in a 94-74 win at Lafayette on Wednesday night. Against the Leopards, Funk posted 19 points and 11 assists with just one turnover en route to helping the Black Knights put up the most points by an Army squad since Nov. 18, 2017. He additionally held Lafayette's leading scorer this season, Justin Jaworski, to nine points on 4-of-11 shooting. Read more.
