MILWAUKEE – Sophomore Matthew Kirmse of the MSOE men's basketball team has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Player of the Week for Jan. 8, the league office announced late Monday.
Kirmse led the Raiders to a pair of key road victories last week to ascend into first place in the NACC standings at 7-2. He averaged 22.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 4.5 three-pointers while shooting 50 percent from beyond the arc over the two games. After a 16-point outing at Aurora mid-week, he went off for 28 points and six 3-pointers at two-time defending league champion Benedictine on Saturday.
The Raiders are back in action this week, hosting Concordia Chicago Tuesday.
