Hartle, Long named Bojangles Athletes of the Week

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. --- Tusculum basketball players Zach Hartle and Mia Long have been named the Bojangles Athletes of the Week.                                  

Hartle, junior forward from King, North Carolina, totaled 19 points and shot a sizzling 7-of-10 from the floor (70%), including 5-of-8 from three-point territory (62.5%) in Tusculum's matchups against nationally-ranked Lincoln Memorial and Queens.  He went 6-of-7 from the field, including 4-of-5 from three-point land in TC's home loss to No. 4 LMU.  He scored 16 points and also hauled in three rebounds. He was held to three points, three rebounds and a blocked shot in TC's setback to No. 2 Queens.  Hartle earns this honor for a second straight week.                                                 

Long averaged 16.5 points per game as the Pioneers improve to 7-1 for the first time since 2008-09 with wins over defending SAC champion Lincoln Memorial (76-72) and Queens (66-57). Long scored a season-high 23 points on 7-for-10 shooting and had six rebounds against the Railsplitters, then tallied 10 points on 4-for-9 shooting in the victory over the Royals. Long averaged 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 steals in the victories while shooting 57.9 percent (11-for-19) from the field.

The Tusculum College Athlete of the Week Award is sponsored by Bojangles, located at 3240 Andrew Johnson Highway in Greeneville.  The Bojangles Athlete of the Week Award honors one male and one female athlete each week from an in-season sport.
