"We are really excited for Alex receiving this honor," said ICC men's head basketball coach Grant Pate.
"These past three games he's really come into his own," commented Pate. "He's one of the hardest working players that I've had the opportunity to coach in my 24 years of coaching and is everything you hope at the point guard position."
He dished out season-high of 10 assists and score 27 points for his first double-double performance as an Indian in ICC's 87-78 win over Snead State.

"This is a great honor for Tre'," said ICC head coach Grant Pate. "It's a testimony to all the hard work and dedication our sophomores put into the season and for him to be named Player of the Week honors is an extra special way to for him to close out his career."
The 6'6" center turned in career-high performances in scoring (18), rebounding (15), assists (3), and blocks (3) as he connected on 7-of-11 from the floor, including hitting 3-of-5 three-point attempts, and made 1-of-2 attempts from the free throw line on the night.

TUPELO - Itawamba Community College officially announced former Tupelo High School men's basketball coach Grant Pate as the Indians' next head basketball coach at a press conference on Tuesday.
"Coach Pate has been very successful as the Tupelo High School boys' basketball coach, and we are very excited to have Coach Pate be a part of the ICC family."
Pate, 44, took over as head coach of the Golden Wave in 2008 and guided the 2011-12 team to a 26-9 record and their first trip to MHSAA State Tournament since 1999 where they advanced to the Class 6A championship game.
"I feel real blessed and excited about being the next men's basketball coach at ICC," Pate said as he put on his red ICC cap. "I want to thank everyone that was involved because there is so much I owe to so many people to be here where I am today."
He finished with an overall record of 92-31 in four seasons as head coach of the Golden Wave.
"I'm grateful to Tupelo High School," said Pate. "I'm thankful for them giving me the opportunity to be a head coach. We couldn't have been able to achieve what we did if it wasn't for so many people at Tupelo working as a team and that's what I've sense with ICC that we are a team and we are a family."
Pate spent seven seasons with the University of Mississippi basketball program as an administrative assistant and Coordinator of Basketball Operations before being named an assistant coach by former head coach Rod Barnes in 2005.??
Prior to his time at Ole Miss, Pate was an assistant coach at Ouachita Baptist in Arkansas where he helped direct the Tigers to NAIA Division I postseason play for three-straight seasons (1995, 96, 97) and served two seasons (1992-94) as an assistant coach at Arkansas-Monticello where he guided the Runnin' Weevils to back-to-back NAIA postseason appearances (93, 94). ??
After graduating Ole Miss in 1990, Pate was a graduate assistant coach at the University of West Alabama after spending three seasons with the Rebels' basketball program. He served as a student assistant on the 1989 team that received a bid to the NIT and the 1990 squad that advanced to the final of the SEC Tournament.
"We're so proud of Grant Pate," said ICC President Dr. David C. Cole.
Grant is just an outstanding human being, a fine person and he's a great coach too."
"Coach (Marty) Cooper has done an outstanding job laying a strong foundation at ICC, and we are looking forward to building on everything he has been able to accomplish throughout his time as head coach," said Pate.
Pate and his wife Melissa have two daughters, Katherine and Emily.
