Boys basketball player of the week (2/3): Grapevine Faith Christian's Zach Postema
What he did: On Tuesday, in Grapevine Faith’s only game of the week, Postema finished with 40 points, seven rebounds, five steals and four assists as Grapevine Faith beat Fort Worth Christian, 108-88. He made 10 3-pointers.
Who is he? A 6-4 senior forward.
The stats: Postema is averaging 17.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists this season.
He said it: “This year I’ve become mainly a 3-point shooter, but I have the ability to get to the hole kind of whenever I need to. If that’s what coach needs me to do, I can do that. If he needs me to shoot 3s, I can shoot 3s.”
Coach said it: “The funny thing is with Zach’s game is in the first half he only had two 3s. He started off a little slow. He had looks he could’ve made. Then at one point in the second half he made eight in a row. It was just really impressive.” — Matt Sayman
Did you know? Postema also played football and plays baseball, with the latter being his main sport. He’ll play baseball for Oklahoma Christian next year. ... Grapevine Faith is undefeated in district play at 9-0.
