BAY CITY - Lake Superior State senior guard Derek Billing was named Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference North Division Player of the Week following his 41-point performance at Kentucky Wesleyan on Nov. 27.

Billing, whose career-high 41 points led LSSU to a 104-90 victory at Kentucky-Wesleyan, was 14-of-20 from the field with seven three-pointers and 6-of-7 at the free-throw line. It was a two-point game with 7:38 left. Billing had a three-pointer, layup, steal and two assists during a 15-5 run that put the Lakers up 90-78 with about three minutes remaining.
