Concordia sweeps weekly GPAC basketball player of the week awards

Concordia sweeps weekly GPAC basketball player of the week awards

SEWARD, Neb. – A recent scoring binge has resulted in senior Brevin Sloup being named the Hauff Mid-America Sports GPAC Men’s Basketball Player of the Week, as announced on Tuesday (Feb. 25). Sloup was recognized with the same award back on New Year’s Eve. Teammates Carter Kent (Jan. 7) and Tanner Shuck (Jan. 14) have also earned one GPAC Player of the Week honor apiece in 2019-20.

Sloup’s big shot making has been a major factor in Concordia’s four-game win streak to cap the regular season. Over that stretch, The Mayor has posted point totals of 25, 29, 22 and 28, respectively. In last week’s action, the Seward High School product went a combined 14-for-22 (.636) from the floor and 5-for-8 (.625) from 3-point range in road wins over Midland and Jamestown. Sloup also added 13 rebounds and eight assists on the week.

With 1,195 career points, Sloup has moved into 20th place on the Bulldog men’s basketball all-time list. In this 2019-20 season, Sloup ranks 10th among GPAC players with an average of 16.2 points per game. He has contributed 83 3-point field goals to the team’s school record single-season total of 333.

Concordia (21-9, 12-8 GPAC) now gets set to host Northwestern at 8 p.m. CT on Wednesday in the GPAC quarterfinals. The Bulldogs defeated the Red Raiders twice during the regular season.

SEWARD, Neb. – Fresh off reaching a major career milestone, senior Philly Lammers has been voted the Hauff Mid-America Sports GPAC Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, as announced on Tuesday (Feb. 25). Lammers is the third Concordia women’s basketball player this season to be recognized with this award, joining Grace Barry (Dec. 17) and Riley Sibbel (Jan. 7). Last week Lammers was also honored with CoSIDA Academic All-District Team accolades.

An Omaha native and Millard West High School product, Lammers helped the Bulldogs wrap up an outright GPAC regular-season title last week with road wins over Midland and Jamestown. Lammers notched 18 points in both outings and also contributed a combined 13 rebounds, nine steals and two blocked shots. She made 15-of-28 (.536) shots from the field.

A three-time NAIA All-American, Lammers will go down as an all-time great for the program. Entering the week, she owns school all-time rankings of second in scoring (1,971), second in blocked shots (178), third in rebounds (1,006) and fifth in steals (348). Lammers has been a major reason for the program’s overall record of 133-10 over the past four seasons.

Concordia (28-2, 21-1 GPAC) will host Midland in the GPAC tournament quarterfinals at 6 p.m. CT on Wednesday. The Bulldogs are on the hunt for a fourth GPAC postseason championship in a row.
