Steve Jurich- GSAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week
Fullerton, CA- The Golden State Athletic Conference announced today that Senior Steve Jurich has been named the GSAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week. Jurich recorded two double-doubles in two GSAC games last week which included an upset win over #9 Westmont.

In Tuesday's game at Point Loma Nazarene, Jurich scored 15 points while grabbing 12 rebounds as the Royals came up just short 66-61.

On Saturday, Jurich led the Royals to an upset win over #9 Westmont 77-70. His game line finished up with 11 points, 15 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks, and 2 steals. The double-double was his third in a row. His 12 double-doubles on the season lead the GSAC.

Most impressive however is the fact that Jurich grabbed 13.5 rebounds last week which also happens to be his season average in rebounds. His 13.4 rebound average leads the GSAC and the NAIA. For comparison purposes, his rebounding average is higher than anyone at the NCAA Division I and II levels as well.

Jurich and the Royals are trying to make a historical push toward the GSAC playoffs in their final four games of the regular coming up in the next two weeks. The Royals are back in action on Tuesday down at San Diego Christian.
