Crestwood High School graduate Trent Jakacki was announced as the North Coast Athletic Conference’s best player for last week.
The 6-foot-2 guard earned the league’s Player of the Week honors after leading the Hiram College Terriers to three victories.
Jakacki averaged 22 points per game in wins over Pitt-Greensburg, Pitt-Bradford and Bluffton.
Jakacki, who was a multi-sport standout for the Red Devils, transferred to Hiram after spending one season at Baldwin Wallace.
“We knew he was a really good player,” Hiram coach Taylor Roth said after Sunday’s win. “He’s just getting better every week as he gets more comfortable with what we do.”
Jakacki, a sophomore, ranks second on the team in scoring at 17.4 points per game, which is also good for fifth-best in the NCAC.
In the triumph over Bluffton, Jakacki scored 26 points and connected on 10-of-11 shots.
For the season, Jakacki is shooting 64 percent from the floor and is hitting on 65 percent of his 3-point attempts.
