UCF senior Keith Clanton and Houston freshman Danuel House were named the C-USA Player and Freshman of the Week, respectively. Winners are selected by a media panel representing the 12 member schools. Clanton averaged 22.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in a pair of UCF wins for the week. He scored a career-high 30 points by hitting 14-of-15 field goal attempts against Bethune-Cookman. House also registered a career-high with 22 points off the bench to help the Cougars to their eighth win of the season.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
KEITH CLANTON, UCF
Senior, F, Orlando, Fla.

In leading UCF to a pair of victories, Clanton was nearly flawless offensively. He averaged 22.5 points and 7.5 rebounds while making 18-of-21 (85.7 percent) of his shots from the field. The power forward began the week with an incredible performance against Bethune-Cookman. On his way to a career-high 30 points, Clanton shot 14-of-15 (93.3 percent) overall. The shooting performance was the best nationally by a Division I player since 2008, and ranks third all-time in C-USA history. He also added a game-high 13 rebounds and a team-high four assists. In a win at Old Dominion, Clanton logged only 25 minutes while battling foul trouble, but still scored 15 points on 4-of-6 shooting from the floor and a 7-of-10 performance at the line. This is his first C-USA Player of the Week honor this season and fourth of his career.

FRESHMAN OF THE WEEK
DANUEL HOUSE, HOUSTON
Freshman, F, Sugar Land, Texas

House led the Cougars to a dominating 85-63 win against Louisiana-Lafayette Saturday, guiding them to their third-straight win and eighth victory in their first 10 games. Battling cold symptoms all week, House came off the bench to set a career high with 22 points. He drained a career-high four 3-pointers and posted 16 of his points, including all of his three-pointers, in the first half as the Cougars built a 45-29 lead. This is his first C-USA Freshman of the Week award.
