Monday, January 07, 2013
Calvin forward Tom Snikkers has been named the MIAA’s Co-Player of the Week in men’s basketball. Snikkers shares the award this week with Ian Jackson of Trine University.
A senior from Jenison (Hudsonville Unity Christian HS), Snikkers averaged 18 points and 7.5 rebounds as the Knights opened MIAA play with a pair of victories. He had 12 points, eight rebounds and three assists in a 56-50 victory over previously unbeaten Adrian, then scored 24 points and pulled down seven rebounds in a 66-63 road win at Albion. Snikkers, who is being honored as Player of the Week for the first time this season and second time in his career, shot 58 percent from the field (14 of 24) and 70 percent from the line (7 of 10) for the week.
Calvin returns to action this week when it travels to Kalamazoo for a 7:30 p.m. contest.
