Fredericksburg, Va. – Junior Matt Ayoub (Fairfax, Va./W.T. Woodson) earned the Capital Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week award for the week ending November 26. This is Ayoub’s first-ever conference weekly honor.

The 6-3 guard was selected as the CAC Player of the Week after leading the St. Mary’s College of Maryland men’s basketball team to their second win of the season on November 20 – an 89-87 overtime road win over Penn State Abington.

For the fourth straight game, Ayoub tallied more than 20 points as he finished with a game- and career-best 30 points after shooting 11-of-17 from the field with five triples. He also added three steals and two rebounds.

Ayoub currently leads the CAC with 116 points, 26 three-point field goals, 19.3 points per game, and 4.3 three-point field goals per game while ranking fifth with a 52.0-three-point field goal percentage. In Division III, he ranks third in three-point field goals made, 11th in three-point field goal attempts (50), 16th in three-point field goals per game, and 29th in total points.

The Seahawks (2-4) will be back in action on Wednesday, November 28, welcoming former conference foe, Marymount (Va.) University, to the Michael P. O’Brien Athletics & Recreation Center Arena for a non-conference contest at 7:00 p.m.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
