SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Purdue Fort Wayne senior John Konchar collected his third #SummitMBB Player of the Week award this season. League officials made the announcement Monday after Konchar stuffed the stat sheet in a pair of Mastodon victories last week to move the team to 7-3 in league play.

Konchar averaged 23.5 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 6.0 apg and 3.0 spg in the two wins, starting the week with a double-double in a 102-71 victory over South Dakota Wednesday. Konchar scored 21 points and pulled down 10 rebounds while adding five assists on 9-of-12 shooting from the floor. 

In Purdue Fort Wayne's 82-81 win at Oral Roberts Saturday, Konchar added 26 points, five rebounds, seven assists and five steals. His seventh assist set up Matt Holba's game-winning 3-pointer with four seconds remaining and he also went 8-for-8 from the free throw line.

He finished the week shooting 69.2 percent from the floor and 90.1 percent from the foul line.
