GREENWOOD, IN (WFIE) - Career-best numbers in the midst of an impressive win streak lifted Ken-Jah Bosley, a 6-foot-1, 181-pound, guard from Richmond, Ky. (Madison Central HS) for another nod as Great Midwest Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Athlete of the Week.
Bosley earned the weekly G-MAC honor for the second time in his sophomore season as the Panthers reeled off three consecutive wins this past week against Kentucky State, Hillsdale and Quincy.
As part of the Quincy Subway Holiday Tournament, Bosley was ultimately selected as the tournament's Most Valuable Player.
Kentucky Wesleyan is now 10-3 this season while riding the momentum of a current six-game win streak. The Panthers neared the end of the 2014 calendar year with a team title in the Quincy-hosted holiday tournament action. KWC still has one game left on Wednesday, Dec. 31, at home against Brevard.
In the three games mentioned, Bosley averaged 23 points, five rebounds and 2.7 assists per game while shooting 57.5 percent from the field. He was close to perfect at the foul line, hitting 19-of-20 free throws for a 95 percent clip.
On Saturday, Bosley carved out a career-high 31 points against Hillsdale in the first of two games at the Quincy Subway Holiday Tournament. He made 12 of his 18 shots including a pair of triples as the Panthers edged a Chargers' squad that was 5-2 going in.
Bosley eclipsed his previous best single-game scoring benchmark after netting 26 against Trevecca in January as a freshman.
As KWC clinched the team title against host Quincy in a lopsided final, Bosley dished out five assists and grabbed five rebounds while scoring 24 points. Another scintillating shooting performance featured 7-of-11 shots made and eight free throws in as many tries.
In the early game on Tuesday, the Panthers bested in-state foe Kentucky State as he scored 14 points and pulled in seven boards.
Through 13 games, Bosley currently leads the G-MAC in scoring (18.6 ppg), second in free throw percentage (.867) and fourth in minutes played (31.8 mpg). He also is in the top-15 in assists.
