MASON CITY – NIACC freshman forward Wendell Matthews was selected as the ICCAC men’s basketball player of the week for the week of Nov. 26-Dec. 2.

Matthews,, who is from St. Paul, Minn., scored 19 points with 12 rebounds in the Trojans’ 101-65 victory over No. 16 DCTC. He also scored a career-high 30 points with nine rebounds against Northeast CC at the Great Western Shootout in Fort Dodge.

Matthews is averaging 18.2 points (5th in ICCAC) and 8.8 rebounds (2nd in ICCAC) per contest.

Matthews is the first men’s basketball player from NIACC to earn the league’s top weekly honor since Orrington Hamilton was selected as the POW for the week of Nov. 27-Dec. 3, 2017.

NIACC (7-2 overall) returns to action Wednesday at home against the Luther College Junior Varsity.
