NORTHFIELD, Minn. – Following a pair of strong all-around performances last week, senior Scott Theisen (Champlin, Minn./Champlin Park) was named to the D3hoops.com national team-of-the-week.
Theisen averaged 19.0 points, 8.0 assists, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.5 steals in the Knights’ two contests, shooting 60 percent from the field, including 4-of-8 from beyond the arc. This is the second time this season he was tabbed to five-player squad, having received the honor for his performances from Dec. 10-16, 2012.
Batting foul trouble during last Wednesday’s game versus Gustavus, Theisen still managed to stuff the stat sheet to the tune of 13 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists.
Due to tiebreakers, the Knights needed a win in Saturday’s regular-season finale vs. Hamline to earn a spot in the playoffs, and Theisen again delivered. He poured in a game-high 25 points and added 9 assists with 6 rebounds and 7 steals—tied for the highest total in the MIAC over the last four seasons. It was his 14th career 20+point effort (ninth this season) and tied for the third-highest point total of his career.
