Kentucky Wesleyan's Devin Langford Named G-MAC Player of the Week

Kentucky Wesleyan's Devin Langford was named Great Midwest Athletic Conference Player of the Week on Monday.

Here is a release from KWC:

GREENWOOD, Ind. (Jan. 12, 2015) — Starting with a career-high 28 points against Oakland City, Kentucky Wesleyan's Devin Langford earned a selection as the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Athlete of the Week.

The Illinois transfer shot 17-of-23 (74 percent) from the field, including 6-of-9 (67 percent) from three-point range as he led the Panthers to a 36-point victory over visiting Oakland City and added 12 of his 16 points in the second half to close out a tight game against conference foe Trevecca.

In the first matchup of the year for the non-conference teams, Langford poured in 28 points and added five rebounds, two assists and a steal. He got off to a hot start as he had 18 first half points and shot 5-for-8 from behind the arc.

Just a couple days later, the junior forward had another five boards and two assists to complement his 16-point performance to help the Panthers seal the victory in the first battle between the teams and to maintain their perfect record in conference play.

Kentucky Wesleyan ended the week with a record of 13-3 on the season and atop the G-MAC standings. The Panthers are currently on a nine-game winning streak dating back to Nov. 25.

Langford is third on the team in scoring at 10.6 ppg. He ranks sixth in the conference in field goal percentage at 53.3 percent and seventh in free throw percentage at 76.2 percent.

Next up for the first-place Panthers are a pair of road tests as they travel to Cedarville and then head to Central State later this week.
