                MUNCIE, Ind. - Ball State sophomore guard Jesse Berry (Lafayette, Ind./Jefferson) was named the Mid-American Conference West Division Player of the Week, the league office announced Sunday. This is the first weekly honor of Berry's career and he is the third Cardinals' player to be honored joining Jarrod Jones and Randy Davis.

                Berry led the Cardinals to back-to-back victories to close out the regular season as he averaged 17.0 points per game off of the bench. He connected on 66.7 percent (8-of-12) from three-point land on the week while only playing 24.5 minutes per game.

                Berry opened the week scoring a team-high 15 points against Central Michigan, including seven points in the game-deciding run in the second half. He followed that up with a game-high 19 points against Northern Illinois, including 16 points in the second half as the Cardinals' rallied for the victory. He tied his career-high with five three-pointers against the Huskies, including four straight in the second half as he went on a personal 13-0 run to give the Cardinals the lead for good.

                Berry and the Cardinals earned the ninth seed in the 2012 MAC Tournament and will open play Monday night in the first round as they travel to eighth-seeded Western Michigan. Game time is set for 7 p.m. at University Arena.
