Coming off a career weekend on the road in Oregon, Dixie State senior guard Trevor Hill was named Pacific West Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week on Monday.
Hill (6-foot-4; Sandy, Utah/Alta HS) averaged 26.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.3 steals in three games last week. In addition, the senior combined to shoot 56.8 percent (29-of-51) from the floor and 70.4 percent (19-of-27) at the foul line.
After beginning the week with a 13-point, seven-rebound performance at Cal State LA last Monday, Hill poured in a career-high and DSU single-game record 35 points, 23 of which came after halftime, in the Trailblazers 99-89 come-from-behind overtime victory vs. Eastern New Mexico in the opening game of the Western Oregon-hosted Doubletree by Hilton DII Shootout on Friday. Hill connected on 11-of-19 from the floor and 13-of-17 at the line to go with six rebounds, five assists and a career-high five steals.
Hill followed that up the next day with 30 points on 12-of-23 shooting with seven boards, four assists and a steal in a 97-86 loss at WOU. Hill became the first Trailblazer in the program’s NCAA era to post consecutive 30-point games, and he became just the second player to record multiple 30-point outings in a single season, joining former DSU player and assistant coach Ryan Sanchez, who achieved the feat twice during in the 2007-08 season.
