BISMARCK, N.D. - Anytime you average 31.5 points per game, you have had a pretty good week. That is what Bismarck State's Austin Slaughter did and he's being recognized for it.
The Mystics freshman from Grand Forks Red River is the National Junior College Player of the Week and he gets the weekly honor from the Conference as well.
Slaughter scored 63 points on 57 percent shooting in a pair of games, plus he pulled down 26 rebounds and had 10 assists.
"He played pretty well on both ends of the floor and obviously with his double-double's that he had he was recognized as the conference and national player of the week. So it's great for him because he did really play well and kind of dazzled the crowd with some real nice dunk's along the way too so he's a very talented player," said Buster Gilliss, Bismarck State College head coach.
BSC is at home both Friday and Saturday this week.
