Clarksville, TN – Freshman guard Dayton Gumm, of the Austin Peay State University men’s basketball team, has been named the Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week.
The Bowling Green, Kentucky native earned adidas® Ohio Valley Conference Men’s Basketball Freshman of the Week honors after pacing the Govs with a game-high 23 points in his first career start, an 86-61 thrashing of Miami University at the Austin Peay Dunn Center.
With his 23-point performance against Miami and career-best 25-point night earlier in the season against Oakland City, Gumm is now the first Austin Peay freshman since Austin Peay began electronic record-keeping during the 1999-00 season with two 20-point scoring performances in his first six collegiate games.
For the week, Gumm averaged 14.0 ppg, 3.0 apg, 3.0 spg and 2.5 rpg, hitting 61.1 percent (911-of-18) from the floor. He also had a career-best four steals in Wednesday’s contest against Bethel at Fort Campbell’s Shaw Physical Fitness Center.
The Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week is selected by the APSU Sports Information staff each Wednesday during the academic year. Copies in a Flash, of Clarksville, sponsors the award.
