In his two region games this week, Nethercott put up back-to-back 20 point games with 25 and then 22. He played every minute in both games for the Mustangs, including the double-overtime win over Green Canyon where he tallied 25 points, six rebounds, three assists, four steals, one block and only two turnovers. He made eight 3-pointers throughout the week which included tying his season-high of five threes in one game against the Wolves. Since the start of region play Nethercott has averaged 22.3 points – most among all Region 11 players – while shooting 49 percent from the field and 48 percent from three and averaging 5.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.

Four other players were nominated this week – Emilee Skinner (Ridgeline girls), Jordan Child (Logan boys), Logan Deal (Sky View boys) and Maren McKenna (Green Canyon girls). Skinner helped the Riverhawks retain its undefeated records with outings of 28 and 19 points. Child recorded back-to-back 20-point, 10 rebound games with overall averages of 22.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks. Deal also led his team to an undefeated week, recording a double-double against Logan and then 19 points against Ridgeline. McKenna had arguably her best week individually, posting two double-doubles including a night with 17 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists and six steals.

Candidates for the Player of the Week award were nominated by Cache Valley Media Group staff and then voted on by all high school broadcast crew members, including “Hurricane” John Newbold, Jason Walker, Clint Payne, Dave Simmons, “The Patriot” Nick Zollinger, Jake Ellis, “The Coach” John Olsen, Cade Forest, Terrell Baldwin, Trent Carter, Josh Theurer and Eric Frandsen.
