After an outstanding 49 point showing, Walter Wright now sits atop the record book for single game scoring at Snow College. The 59 year old record of 45, set by Hal Jensen in 1955, was broken November 8 against Sheridan College.
The Badgers came out of the contest with a 96-89 win and the Scenic West Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week.
Wright shot 13 of 23 from the field and went 19 of 27 from the charity stripe. He also dished out 11 assists and pulled down seven rebounds, rounding out his stellar performance.
The 5’11” guard from Waterbury, Connecticut, is in his sophomore season at Snow after coming off an impressive freshman campaign of averaging 17.0 points per game.
On a more personal level, according to snowcollegebadgers.com, Wright likes to spend his free time “hanging out with friends or working on his basketball craft.”
That extra time spent on his game is now paying dividends as he continues to make a positive impact for the team this season.
