Following a week in which he averaged 17.5 points and 11 rebounds and also reached the 1,000 point mark for his career, Buena Vista junior forward Wes Nordquist (Adel, Iowa/ADM) has been recognized by the Iowa Conference as the league's Men's Basketball Performer of the Week for the period ending February 5.
Nordquist finished 10-of-14 from the field and 7-of-8 from the free-throw line while becoming just the 10th player in program history to have scored at least 1,000 career points and grab 500 career rebounds, when he sank a pair of free-throws to reach the 1,000-point mark. His 27 points scored were just one shy of his season-high.
He also added turned in eight points and 11 rebounds during the team's 68-65 road victory over Loras College on Wednesday night.
Buena Vista is 12-9 overall this season (8-4 IIAC) and will travel to Simpson College (9-11, 6-6 IIAC) on Wednesday night for an 8:00pm tip-off. The Beavers are just a win away from securing a spot into this year's Iowa Conference Tournament.
