CORPUS CHRISTI – Nate Maxey has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Maxey earned the award after his record-setting game on Sunday.
Maxey set a school record with nine blocked shots to go along with 10 points and three rebounds against Houston. The 6-foot-11 center smashed his own school record before halftime, swatting eight balls in the opening half. Through four games he already has 17 blocked shots this season and 65 for his career – sixth on the Islanders list. The San Diego native also went 5-of-6 from the field, finishing off five alley-oop dunks for the Islanders.
Maxey and the men's basketball team returns to the court Wednesday, Nov. 28, at Toledo. Tipoff is slated for 7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT.
