­SoCon Announces Men’s Basketball Player of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The UNC Greensboro (UNCG) men’s basketball guard Keyshaun Langley, from Southwest Guilford High School where he played for Coach Guy Shaver and Greg Vlazny, has been named The Southern Conference (SoCon) Men’s Basketball Player of the Week, announced by the league on Monday.

Langley earns the honor for all contests from November 13-19 after averaging 24.5 points and 3.5 steals per game against a pair of SEC opponents. The award is selected by the league office.

Langley had 26 points and three steals in UNCG’s 74-70 setback at Vanderbilt on November 14th. The graduate student went 9-for-20 (.450) from the field in 37 minutes played against the Commodores.

Three days later, the High Point, North Carolina product finished with a game-high 23 points, five assists, and four steals in the Spartans’ 78-72 win at 14th-ranked Arkansas. Langley shot 6-for-11 (.545) from the field, including 5-for-8 (.625) from behind the arc, and was a perfect 6-for-6 from the charity stripe. UNCG’s win over Arkansas marked the first time in school history that the Spartans defeated an SEC team and was the first time the program defeated a ranked opponent.

For the week, Langley shot 48.4 percent (15-for-31) from the floor and was 11-for-12 (.917) from the free-throw line. Langley also committed just one turnover during the week.

UNCG (2-1) competes in the Baha Mar Hoops Nassau Championship in Nassau, Bahamas this weekend. The Spartans will face Kansas City on November 24th at 11 a.m., with games on November 25th and 26th against opponents to be determined.
