Sinclair’s McNeil earns OCCAC Player of the Week
By Kyle Kuhlman/OCCAC Sports Information
SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – Alicia Sephus (Lakeland) and Sean McNeil (Sinclair) stood out above all the rest from Feb. 18-24 and their efforts were recognized by the conference office on Feb. 25, announced as the OCCAC Basketball Players of the Week.
Sean McNeil (6-04/FR – Cooper H.S. – Union, KY) defended his standing as the OCCAC’s most lethal scorer, dropping in 97 points during three games to raise his season scoring average to an even 30.0 points per game. As if his 32.3 points/game last week wasn’t enough to earn the OCCAC distinction, McNeil added 7.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.3 steals averages. He buried 62% (35-52) of his shots overall and 57% (13-23) on 3-point attempts. McNeil made double-digit field goals in all three contests and hit at least three from long range in each. When working his way to the charity stripe, he converted on 20-of-21 (95%) foul shots.
McNeil now owns a league-best seven player of the week accolades in 2018-19.
