Every Monday, we will be selecting a player of the week who shows extraordinary effort and performance on the field or court in the prior week. We will be taking nominations from coaches, athletic directors and fans. Please send potential players of the week to contact@SanFranPreps.com.
SanFranPreps.com Player of the Week: Terrance Ching, junior guard, Burton boys basketball
Ching, the sharpshooting guard who averaged over 20 points per game as a sophomore last season, had his best week of the year, scoring 34 points against Balboa on Monday, then 24 hours later he dropped 44 points on Marshall.
Both games ended up being losses for the Pumas, but at 3-8 in Academic Athletic Association play, tied with O’Connell for the final playoff spot in the Neff Division, Burton could be a dangerous first-round opponent.
Ching is averaging a team-high 19 points on the season, and in the two games last week, he hit 21 three-pointers.
Honorable mention: Brenden Glapion, senior guard, Washington boys basketball
Glapion keeps strengthening his case as a contender for AAA Player of the Year, with two 22-point performances last week against O’Connell and Wallenberg.
Honorable mention: Mariah Masoli, junior guard, Mercy girls basketball
Masoli had her best week in West Bay Athletic League play, with 22 points in a win over Sacred Heart Prep and a well-rounded performance in a loss to Menlo, featuring 16 points, six rebounds and six assists.
