Athlete of the Week

Brian Wells

Richmond-Burton, Senior

Wells scored a season-high 23 points on Friday as the Rockets defeated Burlington Central, 76-67, to win the Big Northern Conference East Division outright.

It was R-B’s fourth BNC East title in six years. Had R-B lost, it would have shared the championship with Burlington and Marengo, but the Rockets avenged an earlier loss to Burlington to take the title solely for themselves.

Wells hit three 3-pointers and was 6 of 8 on free throws to lead the Rockets. He also scored six points in Tuesday’s 51-43 victory over Harvard.
