FCSAA Honors BCC's Addison Spruill
November 7, 2012 - Brevard Community College men's basketball guard/forward Addison Spruill is the Florida College System Activities Association Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the week ending Nov. 4.
Spruill, a 6-foot, 4-inch, 220-pound sophomore tri-captain from Currie, N.C., averaged 25 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals in two games in the season-opening Northwest Florida Tip-Off Classic in Niceville, FL.
His efforts included a 33-point effort on 11-of-14 shooting overall and 6-of-7 three-pointers in a 107-78 victory over Albany Tech on Nov. 3.
A day earlier in a 59-57 loss to Snead State, AL, Spruill scored 17 points and tallied 5 assists.
For the week, Spruill shot 73.1 percent (19-of-26) from the floor, 70 percent (7-of-10) on three-pointers and 83.3 percent (5-of-6) from the free throw line.
Spruill's teammates Jure Gunjina, a freshman from Zagreb, Croatia, was recognized under Other Notable Performances for averaging 17 points, 10 rebounds and 3.5 steals in two games.
"It's very exciting to see Addison get recognized for the statewide honor, and it's a testament to his hard work, both in the off-season and pre-season," BCC head coach Jeremy Shulman said. "Addison is primed for a huge sophomore season, and is one of the leaders on this team. Hopefully this is only the beginning of great things for Addy."
The last BCC player to win the FSCAA honor was the since-graduated Ellis Young for the week of Jan. 23, 2012. The since-graduated D'Montre Edwards also won the award in 2011 for the week of Nov. 1.
