Acclaim continues for Reggie Hamilton

Just a day after CBS analyst Seth Davis called Oakland guard Reggie Hamilton one of the best players nobody has ever heard of, the Associated Press lists Hamilton as one of six mid-major players helping fill the
"Jimmer void" left by the BYU phenom.
"Hamilton isn’t a particularly imposing figure at 5-foot-11, 176 pounds, but he’s ultra-quick with a first step that’s about like wet soap slipping through your fingers — gone before you know it. He’s also fearless, driving to the basket no matter who’s in there."
.... Although he was somehow edged out a consecutive Summit League Player of the Week nod, Hamilton still got props from StatSheet, receiving a similar honor from the site for his outstanding week.
"Hamilton was the best in the Summit League in assists (7.0 per game) and 3-pointers (4.5 per game). He also registered great stats in rebounding (2.5 per game) and scoring (25.5 pts per game)."
South Dakota State's Nate Wolters was second place and Oral Roberts' Dominique Morrison was honorable mention, as Hamilton earned his third such award.
Wolters did lead the league in scoring for the week, averaging 27 points per game.
Corey Petros was also named Freshman of the Week once again, his fourth such honor.
Oral Roberts' Steven Roundtree was Sixth Man of the Week after putting up nine points and eight rebounds on Oakland Saturday. The Grizzlies' Laval Lucas-Perry was the runner-up for the award.
