Green Bay’s Sykes, Milwaukee’s McWhorter honored

Green Bay Phoenix junior guard Keifer Sykes and Milwaukee junior guard Steve McWhorter have been named the Horizon League Men’s Basketball Co-Players of the Week.

McWhorter helped direct a Panthers offense by posting a 2.25:1 assist-to-turnover ration while averaging 11.5 points per game and shooting 18 for 32 from the floor.

Sykes put Green Bay on his back, scoring a career-high 32 points against the nationally ranked Wisconsin Badgers.  Sykes went 13 of 26 from the field and eclipsed 30 points for the fourth time in his career and second time in the last four games.

With five career player of the week awards, Sykes is now tied for 12th all time in League history.
