Iowa Wesleyan’s Steven Soukup was named SLIAC Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for the second time in three weeks after another great week for the Tigers.
Soukup had 27.7 points per game last week including a 37-point performance in the Tigers’ win over MacMurray this weekend.
Soukup was an impressive 72.3 percent from the field and went 7-12 from three-point land in the Tigers’ three games.
Soukup helped lead IW to three wins in the three games to help keep the Tigers in the SLIAC championship race.
The Tigers are currently second place in the conference standings, at 8-2, which puts them half of a game back from Westminster (8-1).
The Tigers will have two home games this week. They’ll host Blackburn College on Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 8 p.m., and then host Spalding University on Saturday, Dec. 28.
