Lake Forest College basketball player Sean Espinosa was named Midwest Conference Performer of the Week on Monday after helping lead his team to an 80-61 triumph at Monmouth College last Wednesday.
Espinosa led all players in the game with 23 points. After starting the game 1-for-6 from the field, he connected on each of his final nine shots, including three from beyond the arc. In addition to his efficient scoring totals, the sophomore guard also pulled down six rebounds, dished out four assists, and recorded a pair of steals on the night.
With a team-high 20.8 points per game in the Foresters' eight contests so far this season, Espinosa ranks fourth in the league and 59th in the nation. He also leads the conference in steals (2.6) and minutes played (35.4) per game and ranks among the league leaders in field goal percentage, three-pointers made, three-point field goal percentage, and assists.
Lake Forest is now 5-3 overall and 2-2 in MWC play.
