Senior forward Brad Boyles ( Berne , Ind. /South Adams) was named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference player of the week in men's basketball.
Boyles was instrumental in the Beavers 75-66 win over Defiance last Wednesday and near win against the No. 5 ranked Hanover Panthers as Bluffton lost 69-67. He scored 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting, posted four rebounds and five assists in the win over Defiance . On Saturday against Hanover he threw in 19 points on 6-of-8 shooting and had four assists.
"Brad is very deserving of this recognition," head coach Guy Neal said. "I thought
his effort and focus were excellent in our two games last week against two teams whose
defensive game plan was designed to specifically slow him down."
Boyles currently leads Bluffton with 15.8 points per game (4th in HCAC) and is shooting 64.7 percent from the field for the season (1st in HCAC). He is currently ranked eighth in the country (Division III) in field goal percentage. The Beavers have now won three of their last four games.
