Mario Whitley is KJCCC Player of the Week

Brock Kappelmann - November 17, 2022 7:08 am

Seward County sophomore guard Mario Whitley had an impressive week in two Saints’ victories and was named the KJCCC Division I Men’s Basketball Player of the Week.

Whitley, a 6’6 sophomore from Detroit, Michigan, helped No. 21 Seward County to a 2-0 week with two true road tests against Region IX opponents. Whitley had 18 points and seven rebounds in the Saints’ 81-77 victory over Trinidad State last Tuesday in 32 minutes of action. Last Thursday Whitley led the Saints with his first double-double of the year with 29 points, and 10 rebounds and went a perfect 11-11 from the free-throw line.

Last week Whitley averaged 23.5 points, and 8.5 rebounds per game, and shot 57% from the field and 85% from the free throw line. Seward County starts the season 3-0 in non-conference action and will start conference play at Pratt Community College on Wednesday.

OTHERS NOMINATED: Joseph Locandro, Barton; Rob Brown, Butler; Corey Sawyer, Jr., County County; Jason Edward, Dodge City; Aaron Franklin, Hutchinson.
