The senior guard, who shot 12-of-16 from beyond the arc, set "modern-era" program records for most points (47), made field goals (14) and 3-point field-goals (12) in a single game. He also added four assists, three steals and two rebounds in 39 minutes of action.

Guard โ€” TJ Crockett, Lindenwood

Last week, it was John Williams who had the highest single-game scoring total in all of college basketball this season. Now, he ranks second. That's because TJ Crockett posted a program-record 54 points on 18-of-35 shooting in the Lions' 116-109 double-overtime victory against McKendree on Feb. 20. The senior went 14-of-15 from the free throw line while adding seven assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block. Crockett's 35 field-goal attempts were the most for any player in DII this season.

Guard โ€” Tripp Davis, Carson-Newman

Tripp Davis recorded a career-high 44 points on 12-of-19 shooting in the Eagles' 86-69 triumph over Benedict on Feb. 15. The senior sank 18 of his 19 free throw attempts while adding six rebounds, four steals and two assists in 39 minutes of play. Those 18 made free throws in a single game ranked second in Carson-Newman's history. Davis also became just the sixth Eagle to score at least 40 points in one game. 

Forward โ€” Parker Fox, Northern State

Parker Fox posted a 39-point, 16-rebound double-double during the Wolves' 90-83 win over MSU Moorhead on Feb. 19. The junior's 39 points were a career-high, and he shot 16-of-24 from the floor. Fox added four blocks, two assists and two steals in just over 37 minutes of action. He's also the only member of this week's all-stats team that recorded a double-double.
