VanDunk (Dansville, NY/Dansville) started all eight games in February averaging 25.5 minutes per game.  The Hawks finished the month going 4-4 as they pushed to secure a high-seeded play-off slot.  The sophomore forward’s 12.8 points per game (2nd highest) and 6.9 rebounds per game led the Hawks during the last month of their season. Shooting 52.2% from the field and 66.7% from the charity stripe, VanDunk led the team in blocks (4) and offensive rebounds (22).  He earned a double-double (26 pts./10 rebs.) against the tallest player in the AMCC this season and his all-around play in February helped the Hawks (15-12, 11-7) secure a fourth place finish in league standings, earning the right to host a home game during the AMCC post-season tournament.
