He may not get the national attention that he deserves, which is a crime in its own right, but Portland Pilots‘ senior guard Alec Wintering is one of the premier guards in the entire NCAA.
Over his entire collegiate career, the native of Charlotte, NC has done it all for the Pilots.
Wintering has averaged at least 7.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game in each season at Portland, while shooting at least 43.4% from the field in each of the last three years. He regularly stuffs the stat sheet, which makes it even more puzzling as to why more people aren’t talking about him and his talents.
We’ve been high on him over the past two seasons, and he keeps giving us more reasons to be excited about his future prospects.
This past week was no different, as he helped to lead the Pilots to two big wins in conference play to close out 2016 on a high note. Wintering averaged 23.5 points and 7.0 assists in the Pilots’ two wins last week, putting them a perfect 2-0 in WCC play and sending them into 2017 with a big boost of momentum.
After his impressive week, Wintering was rewarded for his efforts. Through a poll on Twitter, he was selected by the fans as the College Court Report Fan-Voted Player of the Week for the week of December 26 – January 1!
Wintering is the first player to receive a Player of the Week award in back-to-back seasons from College Court Report, as he won the award last season for the week of February 1 – 7, 2016. Continue reading College Court Report Fan-Voted Player of the Week: Alec Wintering, Portland Pilots
