BALL JR., SARKANJ SINK A-10 HONORS
RICHMOND, Va. – On the heels of VCU's second win of the season, a pair of Atlantic 10 Conference awards rolled in Thursday.
Senior Matt Ball Jr., whose play helped catapult the Rams to victory at the rain-soaked Whiting-Turner Towson Invite April 1-2, shared league Co-Player of the Week honors with Rhode Island's Joe Leavitt. Meanwhile, freshman Enej Sarkanj's top-10 finish earned him a Rookie of the Week award.
It's VCU's second win of the season, marking the first time the Rams have claimed multiple team titles since the 2008-09 campaign.
Sarkanj turned in one of the best efforts of his young VCU career at Whiting-Turner. The Maribor, Slovenia native was just a shot behind Ball's pace as he fired 76 and 74 back-to-back to tie for sixth overall.
VCU will return to action on April 11, when it heads to Wallace, N.C. for the River Landing Intercollegiate.
