Following a week in which he topped his career high in points in both Seward County games, Saints sophomore forward Brian Bridgeforth was rewarded on Tuesday by the Jayhawk Conference as he was named the Verizon Wireless KJCCC Co-Player of the Week in a league release.
Bridgeforth had the best week of his college career this weekend in the Pizza Hut Classic, setting a career high in points in both Seward County games. Friday he was 6 of 7 shooting and finished with a career high 15 points in an 80-50 Saints win against Sunrise Christian. He topped that on Saturday, again scoring a career high, this time 18 points and also grabbing 8 rebounds in a 111-79 blowout win over Kingdom Prep. He missed just 3 shots on the week, shooting 83% from the field.
Bridgeforth splits the KJCCC honor this week with Arizona signee and Hutchinson guard Kadeem Allen who scored 25 points and had 8 rebounds in the Dragons only game of the week against Independence.
Bridgeforth and the Saints will wrap up first half play this weekend as they head to the Perryman Center in Garden City where they will take on God's Academy on Friday and Raleigh's Finest on Saturday. Both games will tip at 3:30.
