Clark Named the Iowa Conference Male Athlete of the Week



Buena Vista sophomore point guard Nick Clark has been named the Iowa Conference's Male Athlete of the Week, as announced by the league office late Monday evening.

Clark came off the bench in Saturday's 98-80 victory against #20 UW-Platteville to score a career-high 20 points, on 4-of-4 shooting from downtown, while matching a career-best with five assists.  He also went 6-of-8 from the free-throw line with all eight attempts coming in the final 4:30 of regulation when the Pioneers were trying to stop the clock and mount a comeback. 

The game was the home opener for the Beavers, who improve to 2-3 overall with the victory.  Clark is now averaging 8.6 points per contest and is second on the team with seven made three-pointers.

It marks the fourth straight week that either a BVU male or female student-athlete has earned one of the conference's Athlete of the Week honors.  It's the first time that Clark has been recognized in his career.
