Henry Coleman III named Southeastern Conference Player of the Week

November 20, 2023

As dominant in the paint as he is modest.

Henry Coleman III was tabbed Southeastern Conference Player of the Week for the first time in his career after recording 32 points and 25 rebounds in wins over Southern Methodist and Oral Roberts last week.

The Duke transfer is undeniably off to a hot start.

Coleman has now posted three consecutive double-doubles, starting with his 20-point, 11-rebound showing in a 73-66 Quadrant-I victory at Ohio State.

He then tormented the Mustangs down low with 13 points and a monstrous 15 boards — six coming off the offensive end — before scoring 19 and grabbing 10 rebounds against Oral Roberts. 

Not to be overlooked, in both games he shot a combined 84.6 percent from the field (11-of-13).

He also made 90 percent of his free throws (10-of-11).

With Texas A&M off to a 4-0 start for just the second time under Buzz Williams, the Aggies will continue to rely on Coleman for his inside strength. Especially at the ESPN Events Invitational starting with a NCAA Tournament First Round rematch against Penn State on Thanksgiving.

Coleman’s streak of dominance has turned heads.

Even though he modestly shrugged off his latest performance.

"I'm not paying much attention to it, honestly," he said postgame last Friday. "Yeah, I see my mom text me, and my dad text me, but I'm just trying to keep doing what I'm doing each day.”

More POTW honors will perhaps be in store if he does just that.
