Elijah Minnie named MAC co-player of week

Elijah Minnie

Amid one of his best stretches of basketball at Eastern Michigan, 6-foot-9 forward Elijah Minnie received recognition from the Mid-American Conference.

A redshirt senior from Monessen, Minnie was named MAC West Division co-athlete of the week.

Minnie, who shares the honor with Eugene German of Northern Illinois, had two big games last week. He scored a team-high 25 points, including 6 of 8 3-pointers, and also grabbed seven rebounds as the Eagles edged past Ball State in double overtime, 84-82.

He followed that performance with 22 points (5 3-pointers) and eight rebounds in a 95-61 victory over Kent State. He is averaging 22.7 points against MAC competition for the Eagles (8-8, 2-1).

Eastern Michigan will be on ESPNU Friday night against Buffalo.

Minnie transferred to EMU from Robert Morris.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
