APPLETON, Wis. -- Lawrence University men's basketball standout Brad Sendell has been named the Midwest Conference Player of the Week.

Sendell (Pacific Grove, Calif./Pacific Grove), a sophomore guard, took the honor after leading the Vikings to an 85-52 Midwest Conference victory over Knox college on Dec. 29.

Sendell scored a game-high 21 points and connected on 7-of-10 shots from the floor, including 4-of-6 from 3-point range. Sendell also added four rebounds, three assists and two steals. It marked the fifth 20-plus point game of the season for Sendell, who leads the Vikings in scoring at 17.2 points per game. Sendell also set a season-high with four 3-pointers.

It was the first MWC Player of the Week honor for Sendell, who is in his first season at Lawrence. It marks the first winner for the Vikings since Pete Winslow was honored in January 2017.

Lawrence returns to action on Wednesday when the Vikings host Ripon College at Alexander Gymnasium. Lawrence has another home game on Saturday when the Vikings host Monmouth College.
