BLUFFTON, Ohio - Sophomore Dustin Kinn (Alvada/New Riegel) was named the Heartland Conference men's basketball player of the week after he led the Beavers to a 2-0 start to the season at Webster University in St. Louis.
The sophomore post poured in a then career-high 21 points to go along with seven rebounds in Bluffton's 79-76 overtime win against host Webster on Saturday evening. Kinn followed that performance with another career-high scoring effort, bucketing 25 points in the Beavers' first-ever triple overtime contest, a 97-94 victory over Rust College on Sunday.
Kinn finished the weekend with 46 points (23 PPG). He pulled down 12 boards (6 RPG), blocked a shot, dished out three assists and picked up three steals. For the weekend, Kinn hit 18-of-30 from the field (60 percent) and 10-of-14 at the line (71.4 percent).
The Beavers will look to continue their winning ways when they welcome Ohio Mid-Western on Wednesday, Nov. 23. The men's home opener is slated for 7 p.m. in Founders Hall.
