Doyle, McReynolds Eastern Florida Student-Athletes of Month for November
Dec. 3, 2013 - Women's basketball player Jessica Doyle and men's basketball player Demetrius McReynolds are the Eastern Florida State College Student-Athletes of the Month for November.
Doyle, a 5-foot, 6-inch freshman guard from Palm Bay, FL and Heritage High was named the NJCAA Region 8/Florida College System Activities Association Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the week ending Nov. 17.
She averaged 25.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks in three games during the voting period. In Eastern Florida's final game in November, a 75-72 overtime loss to Skagit Valley (WA), Doyle scored 23 points, 18 on three-pointers.
Doyle is averaging 20.8 points per game, good for the top 15 in the nation. She also is ranked nationally in three-point shooting, going 34-for-86.
"Jessica has been our hot hand," said Eastern Florida State College head coach Jim Grimes. "She has made an immediate impact as a freshman and continues to improve. We continue to have high expectations for her."
McReynolds, a 6-2, 195-pound freshman guard from Louisville, KY and Butler High, is Eastern Florida's second-leading scorer, averaging 13.3 points per game in six games for the 6-1 Titans. He also scored what proved to be the winning basket in the Titans 79-74 victory at Florida State College Jacksonville on Nov. 13.
"Demetrius has been absolutely fantastic throughout the first month of the season," Eastern Florida head coach Jeremy Shulman said. "He is a quiet kid, who simply lives in the gym. Demetrius has without a doubt been our most consistent player thus far, both offensively and defensively and is our second- leading scorer on a team with five sophomore starters."
