Bellarmine's Chris Whitehead Repeats at GLVC Player of the Week

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

Here is a release from BU:

NDIANAPOLIS – 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.

The New Albany, Indiana, native earns his second career weekly honor, as his first came last Monday following two impressive outings in conference action.

Whitehead turned in another remarkable week of play, averaging 24.5 points on 60 percent shooting (18-of-30), 5.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds per game. He grabbed three steals and committed just two turnovers in 72 minutes of playing time while also having to endure a personal loss which forced him to log hundreds of extra miles on the road.

On Thursday, he led the Knights to an 83-66 win over Maryville by scoring 19 points, grabbing a career high-tying five rebounds and handing out six assists while turning the ball over just once. The senior then made the trip back to Louisville to attend the funeral of his grandmother in nearby New Albany, Indiana, on Friday. Next, he turned around and made the trip back to St. Louis in time for Saturday afternoon's clash with Missouri-St. Louis. Road fatigue was no issue as the 5-9 point guard responded with a career-high 30 points on 11-of-16 shooting and dished out five assists while committing just one turnover in 38 minutes of inspired play in the Knights' 88-78 win.
