Kentucky Wesleyan's Kah-Jah Bosley Earns G-MAC Weekly Honors for 3rd Time This Season

Kentucky Wesleyan College's Ken-Jah Bosley has been named Great Midwest Athletic Conference Player of the Week for the third time this season.

Kentucky Wesleyan sophomore guard Ken-Jay Bosley sparked his team to a pair of pivotal league wins and garnered another selection as the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Athlete of the Week on Monday.

For the third time this year, Bosley was the league's choice for weekly accolades. The Panthers stood tall on their home floor in Owensboro, fending off Central State, and grinding out an overtime victory against Cedarville.

Bosley averaged 16.5 points per game and shot over 43 percent from the floor as KWC remains in the running for the regular-season conference crown. The Panthers have already secured one of the six spots in the G-MAC Championship.

Bosley was 8-of-14 from the field against Central State and netted 22 points. He nailed a pair of three-point baskets, pulled in a pair of rebounds and had a steal. Bosley also sank four tries at the free throw line.

Versus Cedarville, Bosley came alive towards the end of regulation and into overtime against the Yellow Jackets. He scored all 11 of his points in the final three minutes of regulation and overtime.

Bosley converted a rare four-point play with 2:30 left in regulation. He proceeded to make a free throw and connected from beyond the arc to tie the game at 70-70 and force overtime.

This year, Bosley is tied for third in the G-MAC in scoring (17.9 ppg) and ranks second in free throw percentage (85.1).
