Player of the Week: Kreighton Kanitz


By  Sports Editor Peter Holland Jr.

The McPherson Middle School boys eighth grade basketball season may be over, but there’s no denying the season Kreighton Kanitz had this year. As a result, he is the McPherson Buzz’s Player of the Week, presented by the National Compliance Group.

Kanitz averaged 10.1 points a game for the A-team.  His season-high was 18 points against Salina Lakewood, on Dec. 5. One thing he brought to the table was getting to the basket and taking it to the hole.

“Kreighton Kanitiz really attacked the paint, and if he attacks on the catch, it is really hard for guys to keep him out of the paint,” MMS Head Coach Jay Crawford said.

The eighth-grade A-Team finished with the record 10-1 on the season.
