WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Jesuit Basketball Spotlight (JBS) has selected Spring Hill College center Jake Thelen as a member of its Jesuit Honor Roll for the week of December 5-11, 2011.
Thelen, a 6-foot-6 freshman from Edgewood, Ky., averaged 23.5 points and 8.5 rebounds in two games while going 18-for-25 from the field and 11-of-14 from the free throw line.
He scored his season-high of 27 points versus Carver College on Friday night as the Badgers have won six of their last seven games.
The JBS project is a nationwide effort to identify basketball games between Jesuit schools and, through those games, bring greater positive awareness to Jesuit education and mission. This project was developed by the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) in response to member institutions wanting to spread the word of Jesuit higher education through the more than 90 basketball games in which Jesuit institutions play each other.
Spring Hill (7-3, 3-1 SSAC West) will next play an exhibition game at Samford University (2-6) in Birmingham on Saturday at 4 p.m.
