Junior guard Martyce Kimbrough was named the NCAA Division II Men's Basketball National Player of the Week on Feb. 22 by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA).
Kimbrough, who earned Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) South Division Player of the Week accolades on Feb. 20, earned the honor by averaging 35.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in the Oilers victories over Tiffin (Feb. 16) and Ashland (Feb. 18). He also shot 57.1 percent (24-of-42) from the floor and canned 59.3 percent (16-of-27) of his three point tries.
Kimbrough began the week with a career-high 41 points in the Oilers 105-87 win over Tiffin. He canned a school record 11 three pointers in the win and also chipped in three rebounds and three assists. His 41 points in the game was the 16th-best single-game performance in Oilers basketball history. Kimbrough then followed with 29 points and five more triples in Findlay's 85-65 win over Ashland.
The Lima, Ohio native is averaging a team-high 20.2 points per game, the fourth-best mark in the GLIAC. He is making 4.0 three pointers per game and has canned a school record 104 triples this year, the best marks in the league. He is also approaching the 1,000-point plateau for his career at Findlay as he has accumulated 973 points in only 54 games for the Oilers.
