Salpointe senior guard Evan Nelson gets most of the notoriety for the 22-1 Lancers, and rightfully so because he is a Division I talent headed to Harvard, but not to be overlooked is senior guard Grant Weitman.
Weitman, instrumental in wins over Sahuaro and Flowing Wells last week, is the AllSportsTucson.com Wings Over Broadway Southern Arizona Boys Hoops Player of the Week.
Weitman had 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field with five rebounds, four assists and three steals in the Lancers’ 68-39 win over Sahuaro. He scored 17 points while making 7 of 9 shots from the field with five rebounds and four assists in a 78-46 win over Flowing Wells.
Salpointe is 22-1 overall and 5-1 in the 4A Kino. The Lancers have three games this week, including a much-anticipated rematch with Catalina Foothills on Friday at Salpointe.
The Falcons (21-1, 7-0) knocked Salpointe from the unbeatens on Jan. 21 with a 70-67 win at Catalina Foothills.
