This week’s GoBonnies.com Male Athlete of the Week is men’s basketball sophomore Nelson Kaputo.
On Saturday, Jan. 7 against George Mason at the Reilly Center, Kaputo stepped in and ran the point, playing 20 minutes for the Brown and White. He scored a season-high 13 points while shooting 4-for-7 from the field. He made a trio of three-pointers, most important of which came with 5:32 remaining in regulation when the Bona lead had shrunk to four points. After his triple, the Brown and White never looked back, capturing an 82-72 win.
The Bonnies will be in action again Wednesday at Richmond. Tip is set for 7:00 p.m.
