Bile earns KCAC Men’s Basketball weekly defensive honor

WICHITA, Kan. – Kansas Wesleyan’s Thurbil Bile has been named as the KCAC Men’s Basketball Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts for the Coyotes in a pair of games last week. Bile’s selection is based on performances from Dec. 4-10 by a vote of conference sports information directors. All KCAC Player of the Week honors are presented by Equity Bank.Bile was again a defensive asset for the Coyotes. He was big in limiting Ottawa’s scoring chances and was a huge presence inside. He had three blocks in both games that helped the Coyotes get the wins this week. In both games, KWU held opponents below their season average (Ottawa -17, USM -5), and Bile’s play was a big part of that.For the week, Bile averaged 7.5 points and 11 rebounds per game in two victories for the Coyotes. He also averaged 3.0 blocks per week.KWU is off until January 3, when the Coyotes head to Winfield to take on No. 11 ranked Southwestern.
