Starke Named ACCAC Player of the Week

Eastern Arizona College men’s basketball player Dazmond Starke has been named the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference Player of the Week for his two performances last week.

On Wednesday, January 28th, Starke led the way with 58 points on 27-for-33 shooting and 15 rebounds. His efforts helped the Monsters win a tough road game at Glendale 132-131 in overtime.

Records for the Eastern Arizona College men’s basketball program and ACCAC have not been kept, but according to conference Statistician Ira Hertzoff, Starke’s total is a conference record.

Starke followed up his performance with a game-high 28 points in an 89-87 victory at Central Arizona College. He also grabbed nine rebounds and shot 8-for-8 from the free throw line.

The big week lands Starke, the Gila Monsters’ leading scorer, among the elite in the conference. He is second in the ACCAC at 19.8 points per game, second in field goal percentage at 68 percent, and fifth in rebounding at 8.2 rebounds per game.

Next up for EAC is a pair of home games this week against Phoenix on Wednesday and Cochise on Saturday. Both are set to tip off at 7:30 p.m.
