MUNCIE, Ind. -- College Sports Madness has selected Ball State freshman guard Marcus Posley as its Mid-American Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week.

Posley scored a career-high 20 points Saturday in Ball State's only game last week, helping the Cardinals to their third straight victory with an 80-73 win at South Dakota. He handed out five assists with just one turnover as Ball State picked up its first road win this season.

The Rockford, Ill., product knocked down 6-of-10 shots from the floor, including 3-of-4 from 3-point range. He hit 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions during a key stretch late in the second half that helped Ball State secure the victory.

Posley, who also grabbed four rebounds, was one of two Cardinals to reach the 20-point mark in the game. Fellow guard Jesse Berry scored a team-high 22 points.

Ball State returns to action Tuesday when it travels to Purdue for a 7 p.m. tipoff at Mackey Arena in West Lafayette, Ind. The game will be streamed on ESPN3.
