The Hendersonville, Tenn., native then added 13 points and a career-high six assists in the Bruins’ 92-68 win over Campbell Saturday afternoon. For the week, Wicke shot an astounding 13-for-19 (.684) from three-point range as Belmont wrapped up its home schedule with a record of 9-2.
Wicke leads the Atlantic Sun and ranks 29th nationally in three-point field goal percentage (.460). The 2006 Atlantic Sun All-Freshman Team member is third on the Bruins in scoring at 8.8 points per game.
Wicke, who shared the honor with Stetson point guard Gabe McMillen, joins Justin Hare as Belmont players to have received Player of the Week recognition this season.
