Bellarmine University's Chris Whitehead Named GLVC Player of the Week

Bellarmine University's Chris Whitehead has been named Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Week.

Here is a release from BU:

INDIANAPOLIS – Bellarmine University senior guard Chris Whitehead has been named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Week for men's basketball, it was announced by the league office Monday.

Whitehead was a model of consistency this past week in leading Bellarmine over GLVC West-leading Truman State and Quincy, scoring 22 points in each game and averaging four assists while making two-thirds of his floor shots and all 15 attempts from the free-throw line.

In an 89-73 win over Truman on Thursday, Whitehead was 8-for-11 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line while grabbing four rebounds and tallying two assists. On Saturday, the point guard had similar statistics and his steady play was pivotal to the win over Quincy. During a critical 37-second span in the second half, Whitehead registered four points, an assist and a steal that saw the Knights regain the lead for the first time in nearly 10 minutes and helped spark an incredible 36-5 scoring run en route to a 91-70 win against the Hawks.

The New Albany, Indiana, native earns his first career weekly honor.
