Freeland, Mich. - Cole Kleiver (Williamston, Mich. / Williamston) has been named the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Men's Basketball Athlete of the Week on Monday (Dec. 2) for his efforts in two Alma wins last week (Nov. 25-Dec. 1).
Kleiver combined to shoot 68 percent from the field and 50 percent from deep in the two games. He was near-unstoppable in the first half against UW-Stout, as he shot 10-of-13 from the floor for 27 points, nearly outscoring the Blue Devils on his own. He finished with 32 points and six rebounds – it was the second time Kleiver has scored at least 30 points in his career.
Earlier in the week at Millikin, Kleiver had 15 points, a career-high eight assists, three rebounds and two steals.
