The Male Athlete of the Week presented by CPL for the week ending Feb. 14 is men’s basketball redshirt junior Jalen Adaway.

Adaway was red hot over the past week, averaging 21.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and shot better than 72 percent from the floor in a pair of games.

In a Tuesday victory over La Salle, the Indiana native delivered a game-high 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting, adding eight rebounds and also went 6-for-7 at the line.

Friday night at VCU, he made it back-to-back 20-point performances for the first time during his Bonnies career as he poured in a game-best 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting, again adding eight rebounds while he also went 5-for-6 at the stripe.

For the year, he is averaging 12.0 points and 6.5 rebounds per game while shooting 59.6 percent from the floor, a total that ranks second in the Atlantic 10 this season.

Adaway shared Player of the Week honors with Jordan Goodwin of Saint Louis.

Adaway joins teammate Jaren Holmes as Bonnies to receive Atlantic 10 weekly honors this year. Holmes was A-10 Player of the Week on Jan. 11.
