This week’s GoBonnies.com Male Athlete of the Week presented by CPL for the week ending Dec. 8 is men’s basketball sophomore Dominick Welch.
The Buffalo native helped the Bonnies to a pair of wins last week with strong performances – he averaged 16.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and shot 53 percent from beyond the arc (10-for-19).
In the Boca Beach Classic Naismith Bracket Championship Game at Florida Atlantic University, he posted 15 points, five rebounds and hit five three-pointers and was named to the All-Tournament Team along with teammate Kyle Lofton following a Bona title victory. Then, Saturday vs. Hofstra, he drilled five more shots from long range as part of a 17-point effort as the Bonnies dispatched the Pride. For the week, he sat just one minute.
For the season, Welch averages a team-best 12.8 points per game.
