Fredericksburg, Va. – Junior Matt Ayoub (Fairfax, Va./W.T. Woodson) earned the Capital Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week award for the week ending November 26. This is Ayoub's first-ever conference weekly honor.

The 6-3 guard was selected as the CAC Player of the Week after leading the St. Mary's College of Maryland men's basketball team to their second win of the season on November 20 – an 89-87 overtime road win over Penn State Abington.

For the fourth straight game, Ayoub tallied more than 20 points as he finished with a game- and career-best 30 points after shooting 11-of-17 from the field with five triples. He also added three steals and two rebounds.

Ayoub currently leads the CAC with 116 points, 26 three-point field goals, 19.3 points per game, and 4.3 three-point field goals per game while ranking fifth with a 52.0-three-point field goal percentage. In Division III, he ranks third in three-point field goals made, 11th in three-point field goal attempts (50), 16th in three-point field goals per game, and 29th in total points.

The Seahawks (2-4) will be back in action on Wednesday, November 28, welcoming former conference foe, Marymount (Va.) University, to the Michael P. O'Brien Athletics & Recreation Center Arena for a non-conference contest at 7:00 p.m.
