In two conference wins, Post averaged 13.5 points and 12.0 rebounds to go along with nine assists, two blocks and a steal. A nine-point, eight-rebound, two-block effort helped the Pride coast past WPI on Wednesday before the sophomore turned in the best game of his young career, producing 18 points and a career-high 16 boards and a career-best seven assists in the Pride's win over Clark on Saturday. For the week, he shot 63% from the floor while averaging 32 minutes of action.
