Council Selected USC Aiken Athletic Department Student-Athlete of the Week

AIKEN, S.C. - University of South Carolina Aiken men's basketball player Sterling Council was selected as the USC Aiken Athletic Department Student-Athlete of the Week on January 31, 2010.

Council (Camden, S.C./Camden) firmly etched his name in the USC Aiken-Augusta State rivalry annals last week when he hit a game-winning jumper and the USC Aiken Pacers rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to defeat sixth-ranked Augusta State on Monday, Jan. 25 before a crowd of 3,298 at the Convocation Center.

On a play that was not originally drawn for him during the time out, Council calmly and collectively dribbled around the perimeter before knocking down a jumper from the right corner with 10 seconds left in the game.

The Jaguars would turn the ball over once again on their next possession with Byron Faison (Sumter, S.C./Winthrop) taking advantage of a Fred Braithwaite miscue. Faison was then fouled by Greg Hire. Faison proficiently drained his two free throw attempts to leave the Pacers with a three-point 71-68 victory.

The game-winning jumper was the second of the year for Council, who also sank a 17-foot jumper with seven-tenths of a second left on the game clock in USC Aiken's season-opening overtime victory over NAIA 23rd-ranked Life.

Overall, Council was 6-for-11 from the field en route to a team-best 15 points in the Pacer win over nationally-ranked Augusta State. He also had three assists and four steals.

The 15 points tied a career high he originally set in USC Aiken's home win over Flagler.

Council has scored in double figures six times in the 2009-10 season. The Pacer point guard has dished out three or more assists in 12 games.

The USC Aiken Student Athlete of the Week award is a newly created award for the 2009-10 athletic year. Each week the USC Aiken athletic department is going to honor one individual from an in-season sport for their hard work and effort.
