Division I Men



Congratulations to Alonzo Verge, Jr. of Moberly Area CC on being named
Region 16 Men's DI Basketball Player of the Week (February 12-18)


Alonzo Verge, Jr., Moberly Area CC Freshman Guard (#1),
shown guarding a Highland CC (IL) player in a game played
earlier this year at Fitzsimmons-John Arena.


As he has many times this year, Alonzo came off the bench and was a key contributor in both Greyhound victories last week. He is the Greyhounds leading scorer, 20.9 ppg, which is tops in the region and ranks him 16th nationally. For the week, Zo ripped the nets for 53 points (26.5 ppg), going 16-29 (55.2%) from the field, 2 of 4 from distance, and 19 for 25 from the 15 ft. line (78 %), adding 12 assists and 6 rebounds. The Hounds posted a 102-89 road win at MCC-Penn Valley, and clinched the Missouri Community College Athletic Conference Championship by outrunning State Fair at home, 112-108, a game in which Moberly trailed by 20 points in the early stages of the second half. Against Penn Valley, Verge put in 30 minutes of floor time in route to 19 points (on 7-12 shooting, 1-2 from 3 point land and 4-6 from the line) with 4 assist and 2 rebounds. In the Conference clincher vs. State Fair, Alonzo connected on 9 of his 17 FG attempts (52.9%), going 50% on tries from beyond the arc (1-2) and made 19 trips to the stripe making 15 (78.9%). He also handed out 8 assists, had 2 steals and a blocked shot in his 32 minutes. On the season, the 6'3" FR guard from Chicago is ranked in the top ten in 6 of the region's 9 statistical categories. Zo has dished out seven or more assists 11 times and scored double digits in 18 of the 22 games he has participated in. Eleven times he's had games of 20+ points and has exceeded 30+ points five times. This is the 2nd time he has received Region POTW honors. The first time occurred back in Week 6 (Dec. 4-10) when he was also selected as National Player of the Week.
