Catalina Foothills junior guard Cody Blumenthal is a significant reason why the Falcons have won nine consecutive games, including a victory over previously unbeaten Salpointe Catholic last Tuesday.
Blumenthal is the AllSportsTucson.com Frog & Firkin Boys Basketball Player of the Week.
Blumenthal had 21 points in the 56-47 win over the visiting Lancers. Catalina Foothills also defeated Walden Grove last week to improve to 19-1 overall.
Catalina Foothills, atop the 4A Kino standings at 5-0, play at CDO on Tuesday and host Vista Grande on Thursday. The rematch with the Lancers is on Feb. 7 at Salpointe Catholic.
