The Wilmington College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee named men's basketball junior Malcolm Heard as its Player of the Week, for the week ending February 10.

Heard (Wilmington, OH/Wilmington) helped the Fightin’ Quakers to a 2-0 week by averaging a double-double. He scored 18.5 points with 12.5 rebounds over the course of Wilmington’s win. The junior forward tied a career-high with 15 rebounds in Wednesday’s victory over Otterbein. He also had the biggest play of the game as his steal and assist with seven seconds remaining led to the winning basket.

In recognition of his accomplishments, he will receive a T-shirt from SAAC, and his photo and list of accomplishments will be displayed in the lobby of Hermann Court.

The Student Athlete Advisory Committee is a committee made up of student-athletes assembled to provide insight about the student-athlete experience. SAAC protects student-athlete interests and provides a positive image of student-athletes.
