GNAC Honors Hot-Shooting ex-SK Star Webb

Former South Kitsap standout Derrick Webb has been in a zone for the Western Washington Vikings: 73 points in two games, making 14-of-19 shots from 3-point range. For good reason, he was named Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Week.

Here’s the press release from WWU:

WEBB NAMED GNAC PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Senior forward scores 73 points in pair of Viking wins

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Western Washington University men’s basketball forward Derrick Webb has been named Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Week for Jan. 24-30.
A 6-foot-3 senior from Port Orchard (graduate of South Kitsap High School), Webb scored 73 points, including 40 in a 112-78 home win over Western Oregon and 33 in a 100-75 road victory against Montana State Billings.  His total was the third highest for two games in school and GNAC history.
The 40 points versus Western Oregon were the most ever by a Viking player on the school’s home floor.  Webb made a school and GNAC-record 10 3-pointers in that contest, going 10-of-12, and set another school standard by making six straight treys.
In the two games, Webb was 14-of-19 from 3-point range, 73.7 percent.
On the season, Webb is averaging a team-best 16.9 points per game, shooting 50.2 percent (119-of-237) from the field, including 40.4 percent (42-of-104) from 3-point range, and is hitting 80.5 percent (91-of-113) at the free-throw line.  He also is averaging 6.4 rebounds, second on the squad.
Webb’s 40-point performance tied the fourth-best effort in Western history, and was just the seventh time a Viking had reached that plateau.

Webb has scored double-figure points in each of his last 15 games and 19 overall, which leads the team.

Western, 19-3 overall and 6-2 in GNAC action, plays two conference counters at home this week, entertaining Northwest Nazarene on Thursday (7:30 p.m.) and Saint Martin’s on Saturday (7:30 p.m.) on Haggen Court at Sam Carver Gymnasium.
