For the third time this season, and the second time in three weeks, Central Washington University's Mark McLaughlin has been named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) men's basketball Player of the Week.
McLaughlin, a senior from Bothell, had, arguably, the greatest individual week in GNAC men's basketball history. He scored 83 points and became the first player in CWU history, and just the second player in history to score 40 or more points in consecutive games. He recorded a CWU NCAA Division II record 43 points against Western Washington last Thursday, then followed it up with a 40-point performance against Simon Fraser on Saturday. He connected on 28 of 41 field goal attempts in those two games
McLaughlin is now averaging 28.3 points per game for the season, which is nation's top-scoring mark in NCAA Division II.
He also broke another CWU record by making 42 straight free throws over a six-game stretch.
