Following are this week’s Suffolk News-Herald Player of the Week nominees:

He had 10 points, five assists and three steals in a Friday win against Oscar Smith, and led the team in scoring with 11 against Great Bridge.
  • Khadedra Croker, junior power forward/center for King’s Fork basketball — She entered the game against Indian River for the first time in the fourth quarter and changed the dynamic of the game, putting up nine points and five rebounds in the fourth period and overtime to lead her team to the win. She posted another triple-double in a win over Grassfield: 13 points, 14 boards and 13 blocks. On Friday, against Hickory, she had 15 points, 12 boards and seven blocks.
  • Ashante Humphries, senior guard for Nansemond River basketball — She became only the fourth girl in school history to score 1,000 points on Tuesday against Great Bridge with a 21-point performance, and continued to pad that amount with 17 points against Western Branch and 12 against Oscar Smith.
  • Donte’ Ralph, senior forward for King’s Fork basketball — He led the Bulldogs with 13 points to go with seven rebounds and four steals in a Thursday night win against Grassfield. Then he repeated the 13-point performance in a win against Hickory the next night.
