This is the first MVC Scholar-Athlete Of The Week honor for Eitel, who garnered Second Team MVC All-Academic plaudits one year ago.

Eitel  hit 11 of 12 shots from the field, including 9-of-10 from three-point range, as the Sycamores won on the road at Ball State (68-48 on November 20) and at home versus High Point (76-62 on November 25).

Eitel, who has a 3.62 cumulative grade-point average in education, averaged 15.5 points and 2.0 rebounds per game. Against High Point, he earned his first career start and scored a career-best 25 points on the strength of 9-of-9 shooting, including an Indiana State record of 7-of-7 from behind the three-point arc.

He is currently the nation’s leading 3-point shooter through three weeks of action as he has connected on 14-of-19 attempts from long range (73.7 percent).

n Hoops For Hope fundraiser — Indiana State University athletics is teaming up with the American Cancer Society to host a Hoops for Hope cancer awareness fundraiser during the ISU men’s basketball game against New Mexico on Saturday at 2 p.m. at Hulman Center.

Doors will open at 12:30 p.m. and Sycamore fans are encouraged to wear blue and come early as ISU student volunteers will be promoting cancer awareness by handing out cancer preventative information, giveaways and accepting donations.

All donations will go to the American Cancer Society and attendees who donate will receive a chance to win an opportunity to shoot from half-court to win the grand prize during half-time. There will also be a new book sale with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.

The Hoops for Hope event was formed by a group of ISU students that needed to create an awareness campaign for a class project.
