SANCTUARY Point product Kyle Zunic, who plays for the Winthrop Eagles men’s basketball team, was recently named the Big South Conference Freshman of the week.

Zunic averaged 14.0 points, 3.0 assists and 2.5 rebounds during that two-game week.

He had 11 points and four boards at Colorado State, then drained four 3-pointers and 17 points Saturday against Central Penn. 

For the week, Zunic was 9-of-18 from the field, including 6-of-14 from long range.

He is the first Eagle to take home league honours for Freshman of the Week since Xavier Cooks, from Wollongong, did it on February 23, 2015.

Zunic and his Eagles, who are 3-3 on the season, will next take on Furman in Greenville, South Carolina on Wednesday, November 29.
