Trevor Mbakwe named NJCAA Player of the Week

Minnesota Gopher signee Trevor Mbwake, a 6-foot-8 forward from Miami Dade (FL) CC, was named NJCAA Player of the Week for games Feb. 1 through Feb. 8. He had 43 points, 32 rebounds, eight assists and six blocks in two wins. Mbakwe is making a strong case to repeat the award as he had 26 points, 20 caroms and two blocked shots Monday.

Trevor Mbakwe had his eighth double-double of the season last Wednesday as he had 18 points, 13 rebounds, four assists and three blocks in a 102-70 win over Broward College. Mbakwe followed that up with his ninth double-double on Feb. 7 with 25 points, 19 rebounds, four assists and three blocks in an 88-85 victory over Palm Beach College. Mbakwe shot 63% (14-22) from the field and 75%(15-20) from the free throw line.

Miami Dade moved up to #3 in the latest NJCAA poll. The Sharks are in the same region (8) as #1 Chipola and would have to get past the Indians, if they hope to advance to the NJCAA Tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas in March.
