Colton Kooima was named both the NAIA and GPAC men's basketball player of the week as announced by the national/conference offices earlier today. This marks the second time this season that Kooima has earned the top NAIA and GPAC honor.
Kooima averaged 30 points, three rebounds and 3.5 assists in leading No. 20 Northwestern to a 2-0 record last week. The junior shot 58% from the field, 40% (6/15) from the three-point line and went a perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line. Kooima poured in career-high 43 points in the Red Raiders 83-81 win over #14 Midland on Saturday, the highest single-game scoring output within the program since 2002. Kooima moved into 15th place all-time with 1.616 career points.
