Sun Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week
Riley Minix – Southeastern – SO – Vero Beach, Florida
A 20-day layoff had no effect on Minix as he tied his season-high in points with 29 and registered a season-high in steals with five against St. Thomas. The Vero Beach native nearly doubled his season 3-PT field goal total after three games this week, giving him 31 on the year which has him ranked eighth in the NAIA. The sophomore maintained his position as conference scoring leader, averaging 22.6 PPG, three more points than the next closest.
This is Minix’s second TSC weekly award of the season and the third of his career.
Sun Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week
Haley Gantt – Warner – JR – Boynton Beach, Florida
Gantt was essential to the Royals success this week picking up two wins. She had a strong performance in the Royals only loss on the week to the Bobcats of St. Thomas where she registered 26 points and 3 blocks. She added 2 more blocks against the Rams in another good night with 12 points and 8 rebounds in the Royals victory. Gantt’s game against the Eagles of Trinity Baptist led to a season high 21 rebounds (14 defensive, 7 offensive). As a forward, Gantt was impressively 6-13 from 3-point range and surpassed the 100 point mark against the Eagles now sitting at 108 points on the season. Haley Gantt currently ranks #15 in the NAIA with 11 rebounds per game. Having played in only six games she ranks #4 in The Sun Conference with an average of 18.00 points per game.
