Each week the Athletic Department and the Spartan Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) selects a Spartan Athlete of the Week. The recipients for the week of February 20 are boys basketball players junior Adem Osmani and freshman Sami Osmani.
The Osmani brothers played a huge role in knocking off crosstown rival Richards, 66-64, Friday night in the regular-season finale on the road. Sami finished the game with 11 points and knocked down a huge three-pointer on a pass from Rashad Johnson to put the Spartans ahead by two with less than a minute to play in the game.
Adem (eight points, 15 rebounds) scored the game-winning basket on a tip-in off a Johnson miss with just two seconds remaining. The basket electrified the crowd and caused a visiting celebration on D-Wade Court.
Another Spartan Athlete of the Week nomination included Patrick Michaels (Boys’ Track and Field).
