Lattner Named NCAC Player of the Week For Second Time This Season

DePauw junior Luke Lattner (Hinsdale, Ill.) was named the North Coast Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week following his record breaking performance on Feb. 17.

Lattner drove the Tigers to a 114-110 triple overtime win over Wabash College in his only game played during the week. In the game, he led all scorers with 55 points and added 10 rebounds for the double-double.

His 55 points and 19 field goals made set a new single game school record, one that was held for nearly 47 years by Tom McCormick when he scored 45 against Ball State in 1969.

The 55 points became a new Neal Fieldhouse record as well as a NCAC record, dethroning Ohio Wesleyan's Scott Tedder when he scored 50 in 1987.

Lattner was also five points shy of tying the most points scored in Division III this season where he currently sits in third.

The Tigers recently wrapped up their season, going 8-17 overall and 4-14 in the NCAC. Lattner was the team's leading scorer at 18.5 points per game.

Lattner previously earned NCAC Player of the Week honors during the team's run at the Tampa Bay Shootout for the week ending Jan. 3.
