WHITFIELD IS HONORED BY THE AMC FOR THE SECOND WEEK IN A ROW

For the second straight week, Columbia College junior Preston Whitfield was recognized with the American Midwest Conference men’s basketball Player of the Week award Monday afternoon.

The 6-1 St. Louis native averaged 17.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in two games for the Cougars last week. Whitfield scored 18 points and added five rebounds against Westminster College and then followed that up with a 17 point and six rebounds outing against Central Christian College of the Bible. He shot 56 percent from the field on the week and 40 percent from behind the arc while going a perfect 3-3 from the free throw line. This is his second career AMC Player of the Week Award.
