After leading Seward County to three straight wins in a rigorous six day stretch, Saints sophomore guard Kaheem Ransom has been named the Jayhawk Conference Co-Player of the Week by the league on Tuesday.
Ransom starred in a 3-0 week for the Saints, averaging 18.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 3.7 steals per game. Monday against Colby he put in a workman like effort with 12 points and 5 rebounds in a Seward road win against the Trojans. Wednesday he led the Saints to a blowout win over Pratt with 25 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 steals, and put together another big performance on Saturday at Cloud County with 19 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists, and 5 steals to pace Seward over the T-Birds.
Ransom leads the Saints and is seventh in the Jayhawk West in scoring at 14.9 points per game while his 37 assists are tied for the team lead and his 33 steals on the year are second best for Seward. He will look to continue his recent hot stream Saturday when the Saints host Dodge City in the Greenhouse at 8:00.
