Each week the Athletic Department and the Spartan Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) selects a Spartan Athlete of the Week. The recipient for the week of December 18 is senior boys basketball player Yazan Abunajim.
He led the Spartans in scoring eight points in a 36-31 victory over Stagg. Abunajim also shut down Stagg’s second leading scorer by holding him to just two points.
For the season, Abunajim is shooting 56% from the three-point range and his defensive play continues to improve.
