PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) - Wayland Baptist’s J.J. Culver was named the Sooner Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week. The brother of Texas Tech’s Jarrett Culver, J.J. helped the No. 24 Pioneers earn two wins last week.

Culver scored his season-high tying 29 points against Southwestern Assemblies of God Thursday night. He also had seven rebounds in that game.

He followed that up with 18 points and 9 rebounds against Texas Wesleyan on Saturday.

"J.J. is J.J. He’s establishing himself as probably one of the best all-around players to come through Wayland,” WBU coach Ty Harrelson said in a Wayland Baptist news release, “He’s taking, and making, the right plays throughout the game. I’m glad he’s on our team.”

Culver and the Wayland Baptist Pioneers visit No. 12 Oklahoma City 8 p. m. Thursday.
