Marshall of Akron Zips named MAC East Player of the Week


CLEVELAND – Akron Zips center Zeke Marshall was named Mid-American Conference East Division Player of the Week the league office announced on Monday.

Marshall, a junior from McKeesport, Pa., earned his first MAC East Player of the week honor of the season and the second of his career (Jan. 10, 2011).  He helped the Zips to a 2-0 records last week with victories over Arkansas-Pine Bluff (87-64) and Florida A&M (91-69).  For the week, he averaged 17.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 5.0 blocked shots, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal per game.

In Thursday’s matchup with Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Marshall scored a season-high 21 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field and 7-of-10 from the charity stripe.  He also grabbed six boards and blocked seven shots, setting the Rhodes Arena record for blocked shots by an Akron player and posting the fourth total of six or more blocked shots in a single game of his career.  His seven blocked shots also helped Akron break the Rhodes Arena record for blocked shots by a team with 12.

Against Florida A&M on Saturday, Marshall just missed his first double-double of the season, posting 13 points, nine rebounds and blocking three more shots.  He closed the week shooting 68.4 percent from the field (13-of-19) and 72.7 percent from the free throw stripe (8-of-11).

Through Dec. 18, Marshall leads the MAC in field goal percentage (.651) and blocked shots (2.9 blocks/game) and is blocking 10.11 percent of the shots taken by opponents while on the floor, the tenth-best mark in the nation.  His 2.9 blocks/game average is 19th-best in the nation (through Dec. 18).

Marshall joins Akron junior Quincy Diggs as a recipient of MAC East Player of the Week honors this season.  Diggs earned his first POW on Nov. 14 following Akron’s 2-0 start to the season, which included a road victory at Mississippi State on Nov. 9.
