Goodwell, Okla. - Thanks to his 30-point, 15-rebound performance in last Saturday’s victory, Oklahoma Panhandle State University forward Will Stephenson has been named the Heartland Conference Player of the Week. It was the second time this season that the senior from Chicago has been honored by the league.
Stephenson was a one man wrecking crew for the Aggies in their 87-67 win over Bacone, scoring 30 points. He made 12 of his 18 shots from the field, five of seven free throws, hauled down 15 rebounds, blocked two shots, and came up with two steals. It was his third straight “Double-Double” and his field goal and rebound totals were both Heartland Conference single game highs this season.
The 6’6 Stephenson currently leads the Heartland in both scoring average (20.0) and rebounds per game (8.0).
