Augustine Rubit Named Sun Belt Player Of The Week

December 19, 2012 · By · Filed Under Basketball, Men's 

South Alabama’s Augustine Rubit was named the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week on Tuesday. This is the third time he has earned this honor in his career and the first time this season.

The Jaguars only had one game this week when they hosted Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Sunday. Rubit scored 23 points, tied a career high with 19 rebounds and also tied a personal best with three assists in the Jags 74-69 win over the Islanders. His eight offensive boards were double any other player in the game.

Additionally, Rubit earned his fifth double-double of the year, which ties him for the most in the Sun Belt, and his second double-double in a row. His 19 rebounds were the most by a Sun Belt player so far this season.

Rubit currently leads the Sun Belt in rebounding with an average of 10.3 rebounds per game and is second in scoring with an average of 18.9 points per game.

Another career milestone is within reach for the junior. He is three points shy of becoming only the 14th Jaguar to score 1,000 points in a career.

South Alabama will return to the court on Saturday to continue their Conference schedule when Arkansas-Little Rock visits Mobile for a 2:05pm tip-off at the Mitchell Center on Saturday, December 22.
