Junior forward Lance Goulbourne claimed the Commodore’s fourth SEC Player of the Week award this season and the first of his career after his two double-doubles last week against Ole Miss and St. Mary’s.
The 6’8 forward from Brooklyn, N.Y. averaged 14.5 points and 13.0 rebounds in wins over Ole Miss and 22nd-ranked St. Mary’s (Calif.). Goulbourne, who leads the SEC in rebounding in SEC games only (11.5 per game), had 14 points and 16 rebounds against the Rebels and 15 points and 10 boards against the Gaels. The 16 rebounds against Ole Miss was a new career-high and tied the Stallings-era record in a single game. They are also the most in an SEC game this season. The two double-doubles are the first two of his career.
The Commodores play again on Thursday night in Starkville against Mississippi State. Tip-off from Humphrey Coliseum is 6 p.m. CT, and the game can be seen live on ESPN2.
