Baller of the Week
2/29/20 vs. BC Boncourt
It has been a very difficult season for Swiss Central Basket, but one of the bright spots has been R.J. Price, and the point guard continued to produce with a career night in last week's game against Boncourt. The Radford product dropped a career-high 39 points to go along with six rebounds and three assists in Swiss Central's 106-92 loss in the Swiss Basketball League. Price also tied his season-high by hitting five threes and only turning the ball over once despite playing 37 minutes. Despite the loss Price performed well above his season averages of 15.6 points and 3.1 rebounds per game, and such a standout performance earns him Baller of the Week honors this week.
