Torrez McKoy may not be putting up the same point totals as a season a go — but he’s still filling the stat sheets.
McKoy’s contributed on both ends of the court and has been one of the many reasons the Red River College Rebels sit at the top of the MCAC standings with a 10-0 record.
In the Rebels weekend sweep of the Oak Hills Christian College Wolfpack, McKoy averaged 13.5 points per game, 8 rebounds per game and 7.5 assists per game.
“He can lead us in rebounding, steals, points or assists on any given night and has willingly given up some of his offensive scoring numbers to allow other teammates to shine on the court this season,” said Rebels head coach Scott Kirkpatrick.
McKoy moved the ball around a lot over the weekend but was also an efficient shooter — he drained 72 per cent of his field goal attempts over the weekend.
Kirkpatrick said McKoy has made up for his lower scoring numbers in other ways.
“With increased steals, improved shooting percentages from two and three, along with consistently being one of our leaders in the plus-minus category every night,” said Kirkpatrick.
“There are no other players in our league that can impact winning in as many ways as Torrez is capable of.”
The third-year point guard is taking economics at RRC.
The Rebels will finish their regular season play on Saturday, Feb. 8 when they travel to play Turtle Mountain Community College. After that, RRC will begin their MCAC title defence at the league championship running Feb. 13 and Feb. 15.
