CORPUS CHRISTI – Hameed Ali has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Ali earned the award after posting a week of career highs in a pair of hard-fought road losses.
The sophomore matched his career-best with 15 points and set a new high with four steals against Denver. Then, at Utah State, he posted a career-best seven assists without a turnover to lead the Islanders, adding 10 points. Ali has started every game for the Islanders this season.
Ali and the men's basketball team returns to action on Sunday, Nov. 25, when they will take on the University of Houston on Stripes Court at the American Bank Center. Tip time is set for 2 p.m. CT, and the game will be televised live on Comcast Sports Net-Houston.
