MAN — Man High School basketball’s Jake Adkins has been named as this week’s Logan Banner Athlete of the Week.
Adkins, a 6-foot-3 guard/forward, led the Hillbillies with a 26-point effort in Man’s 98-78 home victory last Thursday over Ambassador Christian Academy of Williamson.
Back on Jan. 19 in Man’s 87-74 loss at Class A sectional rival Tug Valley, Adkins pitched in 22 points, tying for team-high scoring honors with John Thomas Keffer.
The Billies were scheduled to host Greater Beckley Christian on Tuesday night. Man then plays at Ambassador Christian on Thursday night before hosting Tug Valley on Feb. 5 at the Man Memorial Fieldhouse.
For Adkins and the Man basketball team, it’s then off to Charleston on Feb. 8 for a 9:30 a.m. contest against Paden City in the Little General Shootout at the Big House at the Charleston Civic Center.
