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

New, 3 comments

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.
