LEBANON, Tenn.- Senior guard Jalen Duke garners Men's Basketball Mid-South Conference First Team honors as announced by the league office at the conference banquet in Bowling Green this evening.

The senior netted double figure scoring in 26 out of 30 games this season. He reached 20 or more points on 10 different occasions and scored 30 or more in an overtime loss to Martin Methodist and a road victory at Oakwood. Duke was an ironman for Cumberland as he started all 30 outings and played 40 or more minutes in 10 games.

Duke earned Mid-South Conference Player of the Week honors on December 9th after leading Cumberland to a 2-1 week. The senior netted 22 points against Oakwood, 19 points against Shawnee State and 20 points versus Pikeville. Duke shot an incredible 72% from the field and 85% from beyond the three point line.
