Northwest Missouri State junior point guard Trevor Hudgins has been named the MIAA's men's basketball co-athlete of the week.
Hudgins shares this week's award with Washburn's Tyler Geiman.
It's the second time this season and the sixth time in his career that Hudgins has been honored with the MIAA's top weekly honor.
A Manhattan native, Hudgins averaged 20.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.0 steals this past week, helping Northwest extend the nation's longest active road winning streak to 12 in a row in wins at Fort Hayes State and Nebraska-Kearney.
Hudgins scored a season-high 29 points and added eight rebounds to go along with four assists in a 64-51 triumph at Fort Hays State.
Hudgins tallied 12 points, including the final six at the free throw line in the last 2:35, to clinch a road victory at Nebraska-Kearney Saturday. Hudgins was credited with five assists and three steals against the Lopers.
Hudgins finds his name at or near the top of eight different MIAA statistical categories.

Geiman, meanwhile, averaged 23.5 points, 7.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game for the Ichabods, who were 2-0 last week.
Against Missouri Southern, Geiman had a double-double with 28 points and 10 assists while recording seven rebounds going 12-of-16 from the field.
