GREENSBORO - North Carolina A&T forward Austin Witter blocked nine shots over two games last week to earn MEAC Defensive Player of the Week in men's basketball for the week ending Feb. 3.

Among Witter's nine blocks was a game-winning swat against Coppin State's Patrick Cole with 2.2 seconds remaining to lead A&T to a 63-62 win on Jan 28 at Corbett Sports Center. Witter had four blocks against the Eagles and followed up that performance with five blocks in a 46-44 win over Maryland Eastern Shore on Feb. 2 in Princess Anne, Md.

Witter (6-8, 195, Princeton Junction, N.J.) leads the MEAC and ranks 10th nationally in blocked shots at 3.0 per game. His 68 blocks puts him 18 blocks behind former teammate Thomas Coleman for the Aggies single-season record set during the 2008-09 season.

This marks Witter's second MEAC Defensive Player of the Week honor during the 2012-13 season. He won the weekly honor in the week ending on Dec. 16.
