Bulldog senior guard Dontae Molden was selected as this issue’s “Athlete of the Week” following an outstanding performance against Grand Valley State University Jan. 28. Molden contributed 18 points in Saturday’s 65-57 victory over the Lakers. He was one of four FSU players who reached double-figure scoring as he connected on four three-pointers in the win. With Molden’s help, the Bulldogs moved into sole possession of first place in the GLIAC North Division standings (11-7 overall; 8-3 conference).

This season Molden has started all 18 games for FSU. He is currently averaging 9.0 points per game and has scored 162 total points this campaign. Molden is also an integral part of the Bulldog defense as he is averaging 2.0 steal per game.

Come watch Molden and the rest of the FSU men’s basketball team as they host Lake Superior State University Feb. 2. Tipoff is
scheduled for 8 p.m. inside Jim Wink Arena. n
