StatSheet's MEAC Player of the Week for March 4th goes to Morgan State's DeWayne Jackson. Deron Powers has won StatSheet MEAC Freshman of the Week. And finally, Ramon Mercado is StatSheet's MEAC 6th Man of the Week. Jackson registered huge numbers in shooting (50%), rebounding (7 per game), and scoring (14.5 pts per game). The Morgan State senior put these numbers up in wins against Coppin State and Maryland-Eastern Shore.

Jackson added 14 points and 7 rebounds in 18 minutes in an 86-68 win over Coppin State. In the next game he added 15 points and 7 assists in a 58-45 win against Maryland-Eastern Shore.

This is the first StatSheet MEAC Player of the Week award for DeWayne Jackson. However, he has received an honorable mention. The runner-up this week is Morgan State sophomore Shaquille Duncan. Honorable mention goes to North Carolina A&T senior Jean Louisme. Ramon Mercado was the highest ranking player from Hampton, finishing seventh.
