The junior forward averaged 20.5 points and 11.5 rebounds in two big wins for the Coyotes against teams all jockeying for playoff position. He had 16 and 11 against York as KWU won 83-70, and then followed with a career-high 25 points to go along with 12 rebounds in a 78-71 win over Saint Mary. Against Saint Mary he was 11-of-12 from the field, setting a new single game KWU field goal percentage record (.917, min. 10 attempts). For the week, he shot 73.9 percent from the field.
