ASHLAND — Fifth-year senior Ashland University guard Ben Haraway was named the GLIAC South Player of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.

It is the first conference weekly award in the collegiate career for Haraway, a 2014 Norwalk graduate. He is the third Eagle to win the award this season.

Haraway averaged 15 points, six rebounds and four assists in Ashland's two wins last week against Saginaw Valley and Northwood. He also committed just one turnover in 75 minutes for an 8-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio.

Haraway scored 13 points and had six rebounds and four assists last Thursday as Ashland toppled the Cardinals, 83-61. He was 5-of-10 from the field, including 2 for 4 from 3-point range.

In Saturday's 75-60 win over Northwood, Haraway scored 17 points to go with six rebounds, four assists and a block and steal. He was 6 for 7 from the free throw line and 5-of-13 from the floor.

For the season, Haraway is Ashland's third-leading scorer with 13.6 points per game, while averaging 3.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists. He is shooting 48 percent overall and 44.1 percent from long range. Haraway has scored in double figures in every game since Nov. 21.

The Eagles (16-1, 9-1 GLIAC) climbed one spot to No. 7 in the latest NABC Division II coaches' poll released on Tuesday. AU is in the top 10 of the poll for the fourth straight week. AU has now been ranked in six straight polls by the NABC.

The Eagles won 13 straight games to start the regular season for their second-best unbeaten start to a season in program history. They hosted Ohio-Chillicothe on Tuesday at Kates Gymnasium. GLIAC play resumes on Saturday at Wayne State.
