Metro roundup: Smith, Abdul-Qaadir get MVC awards

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State basketball players earned a pair of Missouri Valley Conference honors Monday, as Khristian Smith was named Player of the Week for men’s teams and Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir was picked as women’s Newcomer of the Week.

Smith averaged 21.5 points per game while hitting 16 of 24 shots, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range as the Sycamores lost 96-95 at Belmont before winning 83-70 at Notre Dame. He tallied a career-high 28 points by hitting 10 of 13 shots, 4 of 5 from 3-point range, at Belmont.

Abdul-Qaadir led the women’s team in scoring in both games last week, a career-high 24 points against Eastern Illinois on Tuesday and 18 points against Indiana on Friday.


In other honors:

• Rose sweeps HCAC awards — Ryan Landwehr and Kevin Nowak swept Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference honors for the past week, being named Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week.

Landwehr tied school records by passing for five touchdowns and being responsible for seven touchdowns in Rose-Hulman’s 53-15 victory that vaulted the Engineers into a tie for the HCAC regular-season title. His five touchdown passes tied a school record set by Jason Duff in 1987 and the seven touchdowns responsible for tied a mark set by Eddie McGovern in 1943.

Landwehr finished the contest 23 of 30 for 243 passing yards while rushing for 67 yards. He also set a school record for total offense with 2,929 yards for the season.

Nowak had two interceptions and made nine tackles in the Earlham win. For the season, the freshman led the Engineers with 77 tackles and four interceptions and ranked second with eight pass breakups.
