Union College guard Dominique Hagans (SR/Lexington, Ky.) has been named the Appalachian Athletic Conference’s Player of the Week for the period ending February 8th, the conference office announced on Monday.

For Hagans, it marks the second time the senior has taken home the AAC’s Player of the Week honors, as he won the award back on January 12, as well. It is also the fourth time on the season that Union player has won the award.

This past week, Hagans continued to contribute all the way around for Union, scoring 16 points in each of the Bulldogs’ two victories over Berea (Ky.) on Monday (96-72) and Point (Ga.) on Wednesday (81-65). With the pair of victories, Union has now won 12 games in a row, which is the second longest winning streak in all of NAIA Division II.

With his back-to-back double digit scoring games, Hagans has now scored into double figures in the scoring column in seven straight games and 10 of the 12 he has seen action in on the 2014-15 season.

Overall, Hagans is averaging 14.1 points a contest, along with 6.8 rebounds a game, while recording 54 assists and 39 steals. Union continues to boast a perfect 12-0 record since Hagans was inserted into the line-up earlier in January, as well.

Hagans and the rest of the No. 23-ranked Bulldogs return to action on Monday evening, as they host Ohio Christian in an out-of-conference match-up at Robsion Arena. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
