Co-Lin’s Floyd is named MACJC Player of the Week

Jonathan Floyd, a sophomore from Gulfport, was tabbed MACJC Player of the Week after two stellar performances against Mississippi Gulf Coast and Hinds last week.

The Harrison Central graduate shot a staggering 11-for-13 from the field and 6-for-8 from beyond the arc last Monday as Co-Lin defeated Gulf Coast 97-88. The 35-point performance is a career high for the standout point guard. Floyd backed that performance up with a 16-point, seven rebound game against Hinds. The Wolves fell to the Bulldogs 79-74.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling, but I have to thank my coaches and teammates for helping me get this honor,” Floyd said. “They find me on the court, encourage me and trust me to make plays. I wouldn’t be here without them, but we’re definitely not finished just yet.”

Floyd finished the week shooting 59 percent (16-for-27) from the field, 57 percent (8-for-14) from three-point range and 92 percent (11-for-12) from the free throw line. He also averaged 25.5 points per game and 5.5 rebounds per game over the week.

Co-Lin is back on the court Thursday, as the Southwest Bears travel to Wesson to take on the Wolves in Mullen Gymnasium. Game time is slated for 8 p.m.
