Sterling College senior Jonathan Woods was named the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference “Player of the Week” after helping lead the Warriors to big wins over Kansas Wesleyan University and Ottawa University last week.
Woods, a 6’10 center, averaged 14.0 ppg. and 13.5 rrg. in Sterling’s two conference victories last week.
“Jon has played at a consistently high level all season,” said Sterling College Head Coach Dean Jaderston. “He's leading the league in rebounds and blocks, and leading our team in scoring.
