Rivals Oakland and Detroit Mercy swept the season's first weekly Horizon League men's basketball awards.
Oakland's Xavier Hill-Mais, a red-shirt junior forward, was the player of the week after scoring a career-high 30 points to go with nine rebounds in an opening victory over Toledo. Hill-Mais was 14-for-21 shooting.
Detroit Mercy's Antoine Davis, a guard and the son of first-year head coach Mike Davis, was freshman of the week after scoring 32 points in an opening loss to Western Michigan, and then adding 30 in a loss to Temple.
Davis is the first Titan with back-to-back 30-point games since Jon Goode, during the 2007-08 season.
In the Mid-American Conference, Western Michigan senior center Seth Dugan was the West Division player of the week as he looks to bounce back from an injury-riddled junior season. He had 32 points and 22 rebounds in the victory over Detroit Mercy, and added 10 points and seven rebounds in a loss to Ole Miss.
Dugan's 30-point, 20-rebound effort was just the second in Western Michigan history.
Central Michigan junior guard Kevin McKay and Eastern Michigan red-shirt junior center Boubacar Toure were other MAC nominees, while Michigan senior center Hallie Thorne was named to the Big Ten's weekly honor roll in women's basketball./
