WALLA WALLA — Whitman point guard Josh Duckworth has been named the Northwest Conference Male Student Athlete of the Week for his performance from Dec. 29-Jan. 5.
The junior from Los Angeles had a career-high against Lewis & Clark on the road last Friday, tallying 34 points as he scored 15 of Whitman’s last 17 points in a span of 2:27.
The following night, again on the road, Duckworth poured in 13 in the Missionaries’ 76-65 win over Pacific.
On Dec. 29, Duckworth tallied 14 against Hamline University.
Over the three-game stretch, the 6-foot, 2-inch guard averaged just over 20 points and elevated himself to the No. 12-ranked scorer in the NWC.
