Ahelegbe earns 2nd MVC Player of the Week honor

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- University of Northern Iowa junior point guard Kwadzo Ahelegbe has been named the Missouri Valley Conference's Player of the Week for the second time in three weeks.

Ahelegbe averaged 17 points a game and led the Panthers to wins over Iowa and Siena. In a 67-50 win over Iowa, Ahelegbe poured in a game-high 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the floor. In Saturday's 82-65 triumph over Siena, Ahelegbe tossed in 14 points and dished out four assists. Over the two-game stretch, he shot 54.2 percent from the field, including 60 percent (3-of-5) from 3-point land, and averaged 3.5 rebounds per game.

It marks the third straight week a UNI player has earned the honor as senior center Jordan Eglseder took league honors last week.
