Silas Picks Up His Second Straight MAC West Player of the Week

Another week, another accolade for Xavier Silas.  Silas was named MAC West Division Player of the Week  after leading the Huskies to back-to-back road wins for the first time since March 2006.  The Junior Guard has been on a tear in the past two weeks since coming back from a hand injury that kept him out for a whole month.

In the two road victories, Silas averaged 24.5 PPG, 7.0 RPG and 3 APG.  He also set a school single game record by going 15-15 from the free throw line against Ball State in the MAC opener.

If Silas continues to play at this level, he will be a serious contender for MAC Player of the year.  Silas leads NIU with 19.1 PPG and is second on the team with 5.8 RPG.  Up next is a showdown against Western Michigan and MAC leading scorer David Kool 19.8 PPG.
