FLORENCE, Ky. -- Brescia (Ky.) University's Jermain Langley averaged 23.0 ppg, 7.5 rpg and 7.0 apg for the week of Dec. 14-20 to earn KIAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week honors for the second time this season.
The 6-3, senior guard from Henderson, Ky., had his big week with Brescia going 1-1 in two games. Although in a losing effort, his career-high 28 points in an 80-79 loss to St. Catharine (Ky.) nearly made up for the Bearcats missing their top two scorers due to illness. In the game, Langley had six rebounds and four assists and made 11 of 16 field goals.
He followed that up with a near triple-double with 18 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists in a 75-69 win at Morthland. He made 7 of 13 field goals to finish the week at 62 percent (18 of 29) from the floor and 50 percent (5 for 10) from 3-point range.
Langley currently leads NAIA Division II with 102 total assists, and he is second in the country with 7.3 assists per game. He also averages 12.6 ppg and 5.6 rpg. The Bearcats return to action Dec. 28 at Western Kentucky.
