Athlete of the Week: Brian Sharp

Buffalo, NY - The D'Youville men's basketball started their conference schedule this past week and earned a pair of victories to stand 2-0.

A 97-88 win over Hilbert began the week for the Spartans, and sophomore guard Brian Sharp had a career game in the big win over their conference rivals. Sharp went 6-7 from three for an 85.7% three-point percentage and 18 points, second highest on the team. Brian's career performance helped put down two late Hilbert runs as the men won their first conference game of the season.

The 18-point performance was the highest of Brian's career and one of the best shooting performances in program history. Just one made three pointer off the school record, Sharp is one of if not the team's best shooters from long distance and a threat from any spot on the floor.

Sharp is currently eighth in the AMCC in shooting from deep at 50% (6-12). He has played in all five games for the Spartans this season.

As a freshman last season, Sharp scored eight points twice for his previous career high. He played 17 games, starting one.

Prior to D'Youville, Brian attended Newark High School where he played soccer and basketball. At D'Youville, Brian is an ESS/DPT major. He is the son of Kevin and Susan Sharp.
