Boys basketball player of the week (1/20): Lakehill's Prince Giadolor
What he did: On Tuesday, Prince Giadolor posted a triple double: 19 points, 17 rebounds, 10 assists. On Friday Lakehill faced Cambridge, the defending district champion who beat Lakehill by 19 points eight days earlier. Giadolor recorded 28 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists as Lakehill won on the road, 83-72, to give Cambridge its first district loss in over a year.
Who is he? A 6-2 point guard.
The stats: Giadolor is averaging 27 points, nine rebounds and five assists per game this season.
He said it: “This year I don’t have as much of a burden on me because we got a transfer named Jonathan Page who is pretty good. We’ve also got a couple other role players who help out … I still have to do my part, but in me doing my part, most of the time we’ll win with those guys. Where last year I may do my part and we still may lose.”
Coach said it: “He’s a real, big strong guard. He’s 6-2, 205 so he’s not really the big jump shooter. He’s more athletic and going to the basket. His scoring is more 15 feet and in rather than 15 feet and out.” — Bob Yttredahl
Did you know? Giadolor was named second-team All-State for TAPPS 2A last year. … He also ran track last year and took third-place in the 100 meters in the TAPPS 2A state finals, missing out on second by one one hundredth of a second.
