ANNVILLE — For the second straight week, King's College senior forward Kyle Hammonds has been named the Freedom Conference men's basketball "Player of the Week", the Middle Atlantic Conferences Office announced Tuesday afternoon.


After garnering the honor a week ago, Hammonds continued his outstanding play as the Monarchs went 2-0 for the week with a pair of Freedom Conference victories. 


King's handed pre-season Freedom favorite DeSales its first league loss of the season with a 77-72  triumph on Wednesday. Hammonds scored a team-high 21 points with seven rebounds as the Monarchs snapped a nine-game losing streak to the Bulldogs and won at  DeSales' Billera Hall for the first time since March 1, 2008. 


In a 74-61 win over Eastern on Saturday, Hammonds followed up with 30 points, four rebounds, and two steals as King's evened its Freedom Conference record at 2-2. For the week he averaged 25.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.5 steals while shooting 54.1 (20-37) percent from the field and 50 (7-14) percent from three-point range.


Hammonds currently leads the Freedom Conference with a 19.7 points per-game average with 4.9 rebounds. He has also made good on 36 three-pointers.


King's returns to the court Wednesday ay home with an 8:00 p.m. Matchup with crosstown rival Wilkes in Scandlon Gymnasium.
