Kansas City, Mo. — Missouri Southern junior post player Cam Martin has been named the MIAA Men’s Basketball Player of the Week the league announced today.
Martin, a 6-9 center from Yukon, Okla., helped the Lions to a 79-72 win this past weekend at Pittsburg State.
Martin scored 37 points in 37 minutes of play, adding 13 rebounds, two assists and two blocks, going 16-of-26 from the field. He helped the Lions go on a 9-0 run late in the second half after the Gorillas had gone ahead by one, where he had a pair of buckets during the run. Martin also helped the Lions down the stretch as Southern went 11-of-13 from the free throw line in the final five minutes of the game.
Martin and the Lions will be back in action this week as Southern plays host to Northeastern State on Wednesday night at 7:30 pm.
