Men's Basketball - Wed, Jan. 6, 2010
Joliet, Ill. - Saint Xavier University junior forward Jake Listebarger (Harvard, Ill./McHenry County/Richmond-Burton) was named the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the week ending on January 4 when the awards were released by the conference office late Tuesday. The No. 10 ranked Cougars earned another win last Wednesday defeating Concordia University (Mich.), 78-60 and Listebarger led the way shooting an impressive 9-for-11 from the field (82 percent) and scoring 21 points to help lead SXU. He also pulled down a game-best six rebounds toward the winning effort. It was the first time in his short career at Saint Xavier that Listebarger has earned the weekly recognition and the third time for a SXU player this season.
Saint Xavier (14-6 overall/2-0 CCAC) continues its CCAC schedule on Wednesday, January 13, with a road game against University of St. Francis (Ill.). The match-up is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start in Joliet, Ill.
