VIDEO: Grant Teichmann Interview
ROCK HILL, S.C. – For the first time in his career, Grant Teichmann has reeled in a South Atlantic Conference AstroTurf Player of the Week accolade, as announced by the league on Monday morning.
"It's nice to get recognized," Teichmann said, "but more so than anything, I think it's a team thing. I just have to give a shoutout to my teammates and coaches for putting me in a good position to succeed.
"Obviously I'm happy to get some recognition but I just kind of want to build on top of that and keep moving forward."
The Brentwood, Tenn. native produced back-to-back double-figure scoring performances this week, starting with a double-double in a win over Lees-McRae. His 16 points and career-high 11 assists made him the third Eagle in the last 12 years to notch a double-double in such fashion.
He was 6-of-7 from the field in the win while going 4-of-5 from behind the arc.
Teichmann followed that outing with a 26-point outburst at King, marking a career-high in scoring along with his third-straight double-digit day this season.
In the close 87-86 victory over the Tornado, the senior guard went 9-of-12 from the floor and 3-of-4 from three-point range.
Teichmann and the rest of the Eagles look to stay on their winning ways as Tennessee Wesley comes to town on Wednesday night. That contest is set to tip-off at 6 p.m. from Holt Fieldhouse. Coverage for the game begins at 5:45 on the AEC Countdown to Tipoff on Mountain Country 106.3 (WPFT-FM, Sevierville) and online at cneagles.com/live.
