WAUKESHA, Wis. (WLCSports.com) - Wisconsin Lutheran College's Chase Nowak (Milwaukee, Wis.) has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Men's Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week for the events of Dec. 11-17, as selected by the league's sports information directors. This is Nowak's first career conference weekly award.
Nowak poured in a career and game-high 36 points in 35 minutes of the Warriors' 102-98 heartbreaking overtime loss Saturday at Benedictine. The senior swingman shot a blistering 71.4 percent (15-for-21) from the floor en route to scoring the ninth-most points in a game in program history. It was Nowak's first 30-plus point game of his career.
The Warriors (1-8, 1-4 NACC) have off the next two weeks for Christmas and will resume their six-game road trip Saturday, December 30 at Aurora (5-4, 4-2 NACC).
