MILWAUKEE (WLCSports.com) – Wisconsin Lutheran College's Collin Kennedy (Holmen, Wis.) has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Men's Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of January 14-20, as selected by the league's sports information directors. This is the first weekly award of the season for Kennedy and the sixth of his career.
Kennedy averaged 31.0 points and 8.5 rebounds while shooting 63.2 percent from the floor as the Warriors posted a 1-1 record last week. The senior forward scored a game-high 27 points and pulled down nine rebounds Tuesday as WLC fell to Rockford by just a point. Kennedy, the conference's leading scorer, followed with a game-high 35 points (24 in the first half) and eight rebounds as Wisconsin Lutheran defeated Dominican 94-65 Saturday afternoon.
Kennedy and the Warriors (7-10, 5-7 NACC) return to the hardwood tonight when they host Lakeland (7-10, 5-7 NACC) at 7:00 p.m.
