The GoBonnies.com Male Athlete of the Week for the week ending Feb. 7 is men’s basketball sophomore Jaylen Adams.
Adams led the Bonnies to a pair of A-10 wins last week. Over the two games, he averaged 25.0 points, 5.5 assists and 4.0 rebounds. He was 15-30 (.500) from the field including 9-19 (.474) from three-point range. Adams also made 11 of 12 free throws.
In the Bonnies' 83-73 win at Saint Joseph's Feb. 3, Adams scored a career-high 31 points – 19 in the second half – and handed out seven assists. He made six of 12 shots from three-point range as St. Bonaventure topped the Hawks, who entered the game 18-3 and 29th in the Ratings Percentage Index.
Adams then hit the game-winning three-pointer Sunday afternoon to give the Bonnies a 65-62 decision over Saint Louis at the Reilly Center. His shot, which went through the net as time expired, was the No. 9 play on ESPN's Top 10 Plays of the Day. Adams totaled 19 points with four assists, six rebounds and two blocks against the Billikens.
