DAHLONEGA, GA – Senior Andrew Bennett has been named the Moe’s Southwest Grill North Georgia Athlete of the Week after leading the Saints into their first week of the 2009-10 season announced Monday afternoon by the Sports Information Office.

Bennett was 7-9 from the free throw line in the contest and 8-9 from the field while pulling down eight rebounds in the nine-point victory. He then put up 14 points on 4-7 shooting from the field against Truett-McConnell, posting another impressive performance from the charity stripe, going 6-8 from the line.
