Elon’s Tyler Seibring Repeats as CAA MBB Co-Player of the Week

RICHMOND, Va. – Sophomore forward Tyler Seibring of the Elon University men’s basketball team earned his second-consecutive CAA Co-Player of the Week honor for his performance in the team’s two road victories last week against Northeastern and Hofstra.

The Normal, Ill. native scored a team-high 15 points and added eight rebounds as the Phoenix handed Northeastern its first home loss of the season, 51-49, on Thursday. He followed with a team-best 23 points and six boards in an 84-70 triumph at Hofstra on Saturday.

Over the span of two games, Seibring averaged 19.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists during Elon’s 2-0 week. The sophomore also shot 53.6% from the floor.

Seibring tallies his second-career CAA Player of the Week honor and earns Elon’s fourth award this season. In addition to being named on Jan. 23, Brian Dawkins earned the honor on Dec. 5, after two solid performances against FIU and Georgetown. On Nov. 28, Luke Eddy earned the accolade following his performance during the NIU Thanksgiving Classic.

Seibring, who earned CAA Rookie of the Week honors three times last season, receives his fifth-career CAA weekly award. This is also the 21st time an Elon player has earned a conference player of the week award since the Phoenix joined the Division I ranks in 1999.

The Phoenix returns home on Thursday night, Feb. 2, to host the James Madison Dukes at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcasted on American Sports Network.
