On the heels of his inspired effort in hostile surroundings, Belmont Basketball junior Shane Dansby has been named Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Week. The versatile wing player turned in his finest performance in a Bruin uniform Saturday afternoon, scoring 23 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in Belmont’s dramatic 99-91 double overtime victory at rival Lipscomb. The Pegram, Tenn. native recorded new career-highs in points (23), field goals (10), field goal attempts (16), three-point field goals (3) and minutes played (44). Moreover, he was one rebound shy of tying his career-high. The Murray State transfer has become an offensive mainstay for Belmont, scoring in double figures in all 14 game appearances for the Bruins this season. Dansby was also named to the Dr. Pepper Classic All-Tournament Team in December following outstanding performances against Wright State and Murray State. He leads Belmont in rebounding (5.6 rpg) and is second in scoring (13.4 ppg).
