Sincere Parker Named A-10 Player of the Week

by Brian Kunderman

Saint Louis junior guard Sincere Parker was named the Atlantic 10 Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for the period of Feb. 5-11, the league announced today.

Parker, who averaged 33.5 ppg in games at La Salle and Saint Joseph’s, led all NCAA Division I scorers with 67 points last week. He combined to shoot 22-of-33 from the field, 8-of-12 from 3-point range and a perfect 15-of-15 from the charity stripe in the two games. Parker also averaged 7.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists.

Against La Salle on Feb. 7, Parker poured in 33 points in just 18 minutes in helping the Billikens to the 102-84 win. In the next game against Saint Joseph’s on Feb. 10, he scored a career-high 34 points on 12-of-19 shooting and also tied a career-high with nine assists.

Parker is the first Billiken since Larry Hughes in 1998 to record back-to-back 30-point games for the Bills. For the season, Parker leads Saint Louis in scoring at 15.8 ppg.

The Billikens are back in action on Friday, Feb. 16, when they host VCU at Chaifetz Arena. Tip time on ESPN2 is 6 p.m.
