SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Omaha's Mitch Hahn and North Dakota's Cortez Seales both established new career-highs during their final week of regular-season action as collegians to each garner a share of the latest Summit League Men's Basketball Player of the Week accolade. Both seniors averaged more than 25 points per game as the league's nine members wrapped up their 16-game schedules.

Hahn's career-night came against Oral Roberts on Thursday when the Fremont, Neb., native scored 35 points on 15-of-21 shooting from the floor, including a 6-of-11 effort from beyond the arc. His previous career high came during a 24-point outing against Western Illinois as a sophomore.

In Saturday's win over Denver, Hahn added 18 points, a team-high seven rebounds, three assists and two steals. The victory established a new single-season record for Division I wins as the Mavs notched their 19th of the season. He finished the week shooting 67 percent from the field (22-for-33).

Seales had the best game of his UND career last Thursday during an 88-82 road win at Purdue Fort Wayne. The lefthander poured in a career-high 32 points on 14-of-20 shooting and added six rebounds and four assists. He set his previous career-high in his collegiate debut back in 2015 when he scored 27 against Minnesota-Morris.

Seales backed that up by leading all scorers with 19 points in a loss at South Dakota Saturday. He finished the week shooting 57.9 percent from the floor.
