(C-L)OXFORD — Ole Miss guard Bam Doyne was named Southeastern Conference Basketball Player of the Week today.

The 6-foot-4 senior helped the Rebels improve to 6-1 by averaging 22.5 points in two wins last week. He scored a career-high 25 points against Tennessee Tech and added his second career double-double (20 points, 11 rebounds) against Nicholls last Friday.

It is the first SEC Player of the Week honor for Doyne, who is currently second in the conference in scoring (18.1 points) and ninth in rebounding (7.7). Doyne also is the first Ole Miss player named SEC Player of the Week since center Dwayne Curtis, who was recognized last January.
