Montgomery named Player of the WeekFebruary 11, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
For the second time in his young career, Southridge sophomore boys basketball player Colson Montgomery has been recognized by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association as one of their players of the week.
Montgomery was named the District 3 IBCA/Subway Player of the Week following his performances in victories over Perry Central and North Daviess. He averaged 31 points and 13.5 rebounds in the two games.
In the victory against the Commodores last Tuesday, Montgomery finished with 30 points, nine rebounds and four assists. Just a few days later, he poured in 32 points, eight rebounds and four assists for a victory against North Daviess in Memorial Gym. In the two games, he sank 21-of-31 shots, 3-of-8 3-pointers and 17-of-24 free throws.
Last year, Montgomery received the honor on the week of January 30 after he broke Danny O’Brien’s single-game scoring record with a 39-point outing in a victory over Perry Central.
This season, Montgomery leads all area scorers with 21.7 points per game and has scored in double-figures in all 20 games the Raiders have played so far this season.
Earlier this season, Colson’s younger sister Myah was recognized as the District 3 girls player of the week after her 38-point outpouring in an overtime victory over Pike Central.
Other area players who received nominations for the District 3 player of the week were Forest Park’s Curt Hopf and Heritage Hills’ Simon Scherry.
