Seward’s Stevenson is KJCCC’s Player of the Week

KSCB News - December 4, 2013 3:09 pm

Following a spectacular game Friday against #13 Northeastern, Seward County freshman guard Niem Stevenson was named the Jayhawk Conference Player of the Week by league officials Wednesday.

Despite suffering a badly sprained ankle early in the Saints game Friday against 12-0 Northeastern, Stevenson put on a show against the Plainsmen in another close late game loss for Seward. He scored a career high 33 points and had a career high 11 rebounds in 32 minutes of action. The injury forced him to the sidelines for Saturday’s contest with Western Nebraska.

Stevenson is Seward’s leading scorer after 10 games, averaging 18 points per night. He is tied for the team lead in rebounds at 5.8 per game and had been the Saints top offensive rebounder this season with over 4 per game.

Stevenson is the first Seward freshman to win the award in over two years, with the last Saints player to garner the accolades as a rookie being Kaheem Ransom on November 20th of 2011.

Seward will look to end a 1-4 slide this weekend in the Greenhouse when they host Sunrise Christian Friday at 8:00 and Kingdom Prep at 8:00 Saturday in the Pizza Hut Classic in Liberal.
