RICHMOND, Va. – VCU senior guard JeQuan Lewis was named Virginia Lottery Student-Athlete of the Week for his shooting prowess in games against George Washington and Davidson last week.
On the feeling of closing such a game out, Lewis said, "It was big time. I was ready to step to the line the second time and missing wasn't on my mind. I felt confident in making both and my teammates had confidence in me making both."
On Saturday, Feb. 11, Lewis knocked down a season-high 27 points to lead the Rams to a 74-60 victory over the Davidson Wildcats. Lewis shot 4-of-8 from beyond the arc and dished out three assists.
Lewis was happy to come out on top this time around against the Wildcats.
"I had a personal grudge. We lost to them at their place. The second time around, I wanted to do everything I could do to prevent us from losing. I did everything I could for my team."
Lewis leads VCU into battle tonight with the hope of securing its seventh straight win against Saint Joseph's at E.J. Wade Arena at 6 p.m.
