SMU's O'Neill, Haskey earn GNAC honors
A pair of Saint Martin's University basketball players -- Roger O'Neill and Chelsea Haskey -- earned the Great Northwest Athletic Conference's men's and women's basketball players of the week honors after their performances last weekend.
O'Neill shared the men's player of the week honors with Alaska Fairbanks' Pat Voeut after equaling his career-high 24 points on 9-of-15 shooting in SMU's 71-59 win over Western Oregon last Saturday. On the women's side, Haskey scored 38 points in two games last week as the SMU women split a pair of games against Montana State-Billings and Seattle Pacific. The Saints' 70-66 upset of GNAC co-leader SPU was the team's first win over the Falcons in two seasons.
