After helping the Parkside Rangers men’s basketball team to its first 2-0 start in Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, sophomore Rasheed Bello has been named this week’s Kenosha.com Ranger of the Week.
Bello was a key contributor in two conference wins last weekend. The Chicago native averaged 18 points per game, netting his fourth 20-point game in Saturday’s 76-68 triumph over Northern Michigan. In the come-from-behind victory, Bello also recorded the first double-double of his collegiate career, pulling down 12 rebounds to go along with his 20 points. He also scored a team-high 16 points in a 72-49 victory over Michigan Tech on Thursday, Dec. 1.
Currently, Bello ranks second in the GLIAC in scoring (17.8 ppg) and first in assists (4.4).
The Rangers are now 7-2 overall, which is their best start since the 2016-17 season when they went 22-8 and appeared in the NCAA Division II Tournament.
Parkside will take a three-game winning streak into its game Friday (Dec. 9) against Saginaw Valley State in University Center, Mich. The Rangers then play Wayne State Sunday (Dec. 11) in Detroit.
