University of Wisconsin-Green Bay sophomore forward Mike Schachtner has been named the Horizon League Men's Basketball Player of the Week. It is the first such honor for Schachtner in his career and the first by a Phoenix player this season.
The Somerset, Wisconsin native averaged 27 points and 6.5 rebounds a game in UW-Green Bay's two wins over Chicago State and South Dakota State last week. He shot 66.7% (16-24) from the field, 75% (9-12) from three point range and all 13 of his free throw attempts.
Schachtner leads the Horizon League with a .586 three-point percentage and ranks third with an overall field goal percentage of .506 and an .879 free throw percentage. His 13.2 points per game average is second best on the team.
