For the second time during his freshman season at Seward County, Saints guard Niem Stevenson has been named the KJCCC Player of the Week.
Stevenson put on an aerial show this week in a pair of games. The high flying guard from Dallas, Texas averaged 22 points and 7 rebounds per game as the Saints ran their Jayhawk West record to a perfect 3-0. Wednesday at Colby the Saints needed all of Stevenson's 23 points in an 85-82 win over the Trojans. On Saturday in a marquee matchup with #12 Hutchinson he shined again, scoring 21 points and pulling down 9 rebounds as the Saints throttled the Dragons 98-76 to take an early leg up in the Jayhawk West race.
Stevenson currently leads the Saints in scoring at 16.7 points per game and is second on the team in rebounding at 5.5 per game.
Stevenson and the Saints will hit the court once again on Wednesday as they travel to Barton for a key early season Jayhawk West tilt in the Kirkman Center before returning home on Saturday as they host Dodge City on Homecoming night in the Greenhouse.
