La Vernia native Kotzur honored again at St. Mary’s
SAN ANTONIO -- For the fourth time this season, St. Mary’s big man Kevin Kotzur has been named the Heartland Conference Player of the Week, the league recently announced.
Kotzur, a junior from La Vernia, averaged 21 points and 5.5 rebounds over two games last week, including scoring 20 in 21 minutes to lead the Rattlers (15-7, 8-3 in Heartland Conference) to a blowout win over Oklahoma Panhandle State.
His big week helped move St. Mary’s back into contention to win the Heartland Conference regular-season championship, and earn the right to host the tournament, as the Rattlers now trail Texas A&M International by just a single game. The two teams will meet up in the regular-season finale in Laredo Feb. 25.
Kotzur leads the Heartland Conference in rebounding (8.8 per game) and field-goal percentage (64 percent), and ranks second in scoring (17.5 points per game).
With a full season left in his career, Kotzur already ranks sixth all-time in St. Mary’s history with more than 666 career rebounds and is 25 points away from cracking the top-10 all-time scoring list with 1,343 career points. His 65.9-percent career shooting percentage ranks No. 1 in the modern era.
