Following are this week’s Suffolk News-Herald Player of the Week nominees:
- Jacorey Smith, senior guard for King’s Fork basketball — He led his team with 14 points and had seven rebounds, five assists and six steals in a win against Menchville. Though quieter on the scoring front, he was a valuable contributor in the win against Kellam with 10 points, eight assists, four steals and three blocks.
- Ed Drew, senior forward for Nansemond River basketball — He has been solid as a rock statistically for the Warriors this week with 12 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks in a win against Richmond Senior High School. In a loss to Mount Zion Christian, he still posted 13 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks.
- Jaquan Yulee, freshman guard for Lakeland basketball — He has moved into the starting lineup for the Cavaliers and led his team with 16 points against Woodside. The next day, he helped Lakeland snap a six-game losing streak by posting a double-double, 14 points and 17 rebounds, against Salem.
Next Sunday, we’ll feature the readers’ choice in a story on the sports page.
