Ward Controls Tempo, Scores Career-High To Lead Spartans Past Shepard


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 February 5 is sophomore boys basketball player Trey Ward.

He continued his steady play with a career-high 14 points, four assists, four rebounds and two steals last week in a win over Shepard. Ward was 10-for-12 from the free-throw line and in shooting 80 percent from the stripe for the season.

“Trey did a great job controlling the tempo for us,” head coach Jason Rhodes said. “He is terrific at the free-throw line, and that is incredibly important as he often has the ball in his hands late in games when we are trying to protect a lead.”
