SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- South Dakota State senior Mike Daum, the newly minted all-time scoring leader in The Summit League, equaled another league mark by being named the Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the 15th-time in his career.

Daum averaged 30.0 ppg in a pair of games last week and broke the league's scoring mark previously held by Oral Roberts' Caleb Green by pouring in a season-high 42 points in a 101-92 win over Southern on Friday.

He went 13-for-18 from the field and 14-for-15 from the foul stripe in the win over Southern and also added eight rebounds.   

Daum's 15 weekly accolades tie him with Green, who held the scoring mark at 2,503 points, and SDSU alum Nate Wolters.
