Duop Reath’s first week as a Tiger couldn’t have gone much better.
The 6-foot-10 center from the Sudan, by way of Australia, earned SEC Player of the Week honors after anchoring the paint in LSU’s 91-69 win over Wofford.
From the SEC’s release:
Reath, a 6-foot-10, 235-pound junior forward from Perth, Australia, had 23 points, 14 rebounds, three blocks and three steals in a win over Wofford. The junior college transfer shot 69.2 percent (9 of 13) from the field in his debut for the Tigers. Reath became the sixth player in the Johnny Jones era at LSU dating back to the start of the 2012-13 season to have at least one career 20 pts-10 rebound game.
LSU returns to the court on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. tipoff with Southern Miss.
