SAN ANTONIO -- St. Mary’s star forward Kevin Kotzur has been named the Heartland Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for the second straight week, the league announced Monday.
Kotzur, a junior from La Vernia, averaged 22.3 points and 9.0 rebounds over three games last week, and had the game-winning putback bucket with five seconds left in the game against Texas A&M-Kingsville. The score capped a comeback from a 23-point deficit in a big road win.
Kotzur, who has scored in double digits in all six games this year, posted a double-double in the victory over Kingsville, and later scored 18 points in 19 minutes in a blowout win over Dallas Christian. He shot 63.8 percent from the floor during the week.
For the season, Kotzur leads the Heartland Conference in scoring with 22.0 points per game, in rebounding with 9.7 boards per game, and in shooting percentage at .670 percent.
