FMU’s Fulmore named PBC Player of the Week

Francis Marion University junior Shaunice Fulmore has been named the Peach Belt Conference women's basketball Player of the Week for the week of Nov. 13-19. It marks the second consecutive week a Patriot has earned the award.

The 5-10 Lake City, S.C., native averaged 24.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per game in two contests last week.  She shot 54.1 percent from the floor, was 3-of-5 from three-point range, and hit 5-of-6 free throws. For the week, she played 74 of a possible 80 minutes.

Fulmore scored a career-high-equaling 29 points and hauled down seven rebounds in road win at Elizabeth City State University on Saturday.  Earlier in the week, she tallied 19 points with seven rebounds in narrow 69-65 loss to 14th-ranked Wingate University.

On Saturday, she surpassed 900 career points and moved into 26th position on FMU career scoring list.  She is currently third in the PBC in scoring (21.8 ppg), eighth in rebounding (8.3 rpg), and leads the conference in steals (13).

This marks the second time in her three years that Fulmore has been named the conference Player of the week.

The 3-1 Patriots will play at Chowan University on Tuesday, Nov. 28, with tip-off set for 5:30 p.m.  The next home game for Francis Marion will be Sunday, Dec. 17, at 1:30 p.m. against PBC foe Georgia Southwestern State University.

Fulmore is a graduate of Lake City High School.
