StatSheet's Ohio Valley Player of the Week for March 4th goes to Tennessee State's Robert Covington. And finally, Eastern Kentucky's Marcus Lewis has taken StatSheet's Ohio Valley 6th Man of the Week.

Covington topped the Ohio Valley in rebounding (12.0 per game). He also tallied respectable numbers with 50% shooting, 18 points per game, and 3 steals per game. The Tennessee State senior put these numbers up in a victory versus Eastern Kentucky and an unfortunate loss to Morehead State.

Covington led the Tigers in rebounding with 8 and added 4 steals in a 101-100 loss to Morehead State. That was followed by 13 points and 16 rebounds in a narrow 85-81 victory against Eastern Kentucky.

This is the second time this season that Robert Covington has been named StatSheet Ohio Valley Player of the Week. The runner-up this week is Tennessee State senior Kellen Thornton. Honorable mention goes to Blake Jenkins, a junior from Belmont. Angelo Warner was the highest ranking player from Morehead State, finishing 14th.

Marcus Lewis has won the StatSheet Ohio Valley 6th Man of the Week a total of 3 times. Brandon Baker, a senior forward from Belmont, is runner up. Chris Freeman, a sophomore forward from Austin Peay, earns honorable mention. Morehead State has yet to win StatSheet Ohio Valley Player of the Week.
