D3hoops.com has named Hope senior forward Will Bowser of Midland (Dow HS) to its national Team of the Week.

The weekly honor roll recognizes the top performances at each of the five positions from the previous week.

Joining Bowser on the national honor team are guards Matt Addison of Hardin-Simmons, Tex. and Brandon Irwin of Howard Payne, Tex., center Andrew Steloff of Oglethorpe, Ga., and forward David Golemnioski of SUNY-IT, N.Y.

Bowser was also honored as the MIAA Player of the Week for the third time this season and the fifth time in his career, sharing the honor with Kalamazoo's Joe Prepolec.

He scored 72 points in leading Hope to two come-from-behind victories that solidified the Flying Dutchmen's hold on first place in the MIAA race. He poured in a career-high 46 points in a 100-95 overtime win over Kalamazoo, and then added 26 points, including four free throws in the final 30 seconds, as Hope defeated Calvin, 76-70. Bowser made 22 of 39 shots from the field (56 percent), including 9 of 17 3-pointers (53 percent), and 19 of 22 from the free-throw line (86 percent) for the week. He added 10 rebounds and five steals in the two games.
