AIKEN -- University of South Carolina Aiken men’s senior basketball player Sterling Council was named the South Carolina Education Lottery USC Aiken Athletic Department Student-Athlete of the Week on Nov. 21, 2011.

The 6-foot, 170-pound Council is a former basketball standout at Camden High and earned All-State honors while being named the Region 6-AAA player of the year for the 2007-08 season.

Council, a point guard for the Pacers, came off the bench to average 15 points, 3.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game for the Pacers in their first two games of the year.

Council shot 40 percent (9-of-20) from the field on the week. He hit upon 83.3 percent (10-of-12) of his free throw attempts.

In USC Aiken’s season-opening win over Voorhees at the Convocation Center on Wednesday, Nov. 16, Council finished with 11 points and six assists.

Council followed up his strong opening-game performance by leading all players with 19 points in USC Aiken’s narrow road loss to Elizabeth City State on Saturday, Nov. 19. He hit seven of his eight free throw attempts in the game. He also had four rebounds, including three offensive caroms.
