Bardsley receives Association of Division III Independents men’s basketball Player of the Week award

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Nebraska Wesleyan University senior guard Trey Bardsley (Beatrice, Neb.) has been awarded the Association of Division III Independents men's basketball Player of the Week. Bardsley averaged 36.5 points per game in two victories for Nebraska Wesleyan to extend the Prairie Wolves winning streak to five games. The senior scored a career-high-tying 48 points in a 108-96 victory over Hastings on Wednesday, going an impressive 16-of-19 (84.2 percent) from the floor, including 7-of-10 from downtown. The guard also pulled down five rebounds, made four steals and had two assists in 40 minutes of action. Bardsley concluded the week with 25 points in a Senior Day victory over Dordt, making the eventual game-winning field goal in the final minute. For the week, the senior was 11-of-21 from three-point land as he set the new Nebraska Wesleyan single season record with 114 made three-pointers. Bardsley needs just two points to move up to third on the Nebraska Wesleyan all-time scoring list and six more trifectas to break the school career mark.
