Central Christian College’s Ernest Burton is making the most of his opportunity.
Burton, who had been the Tigers’ sixth man until a recent injury to leading scorer Michael Gholston, had a monster week.
For that, he was highly decorated.
Burrton was named AII Player of the Week after leading the Tigers to a pair of runaway victories to push their splendid record to 9-2.
Burrton scored 49 points (24.5 average) and grabbed 14 rebounds in two games, including a career-high 27 points against Manhattan Christian. He shot 53 percent and drained 11 3-pointers.
