Myron Dempsey Named GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week

CORPUS CHRISTI – Texas A&M - Corpus Christi men's basketball player Myron Dempsey has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Dempsey earned the award following his performance last week. 

Dempsey had a stellar week for the Islanders, averaging over a double-double with 15.0 points and 11.5 boards on the week. In the Islanders' clutch OT win over Utah State, the junior went 7-for-10, scoring 16 points, and grabbed 15 rebounds while playing 40 minutes. He followed that up with 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting from the floor and added eight rebounds against No. 25 Texas A&M.  

For the week, he averaged an impressive 5.5 offensive rebounds per game, adding to his league-leading pace on the offensive glass. He also had four steals, two blocks and three assists over the two contests. 

Dempsey and the men's basketball will be in action on Thursday, Dec. 1, against Texas Tech at 7 p.m. at the American Bank Center.
