MILWAUKEE, Wis. (naccsports.org) --- Concordia University Chicago guard Mitch Pelissier (Puyallup, Wash.) has been named Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) Men's Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of December 31-January 6, as selected by the league's sports information directors.

Pelissier, a senior, averaged 33.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 2.0 steals as the Cougars split a pair of league games last week. He opened with 26 points on 9-of-18 shooting from the field, eight rebounds, four assists and a steal in a 97-84 loss at Aurora, then exploded for a career-high 40 points on 13-of-25 shooting in a 103-92 overtime win over Division Street rival Dominican. He shot 13-of-25 from the floor and was 12-of-17 at the line against the Stars with eight rebounds, four assists and three steals in 43 minutes. Pelissier's 40-point game was the first such game for a Cougar in at least two decades. He has now scored at least 26 points in four consecutive games.
