Members of the Beloit Trojans Boys Basketball team have been named the Telephone and Cable Athletes of the Week.

Beloit had a regular season to remember in 2018-19 as they won the NCAA league championship with a 12-0 record and are 19-1 going into the postseason.  It was the first league title for Beloit since the 2013-14 season, as they went 12-0 in that campaign as well.  The highlight of the year was a sweep over Sacred Heart, which ended a four-year run for the Knights at the top of the league.  The Trojans win over Sacred Heart on January 24 snapped a 45-game league win streak for the Knights.  This past week, Beloit picked up a 66-53 win at Minneapolis on Friday night to wrap up the undefeated league season and followed that up with a 75-54 win over Smith Center to wrap the regular season.  Beloit has had terrific balance this season with five players averaging 7.4 ppg or more.  Next up for the Trojans will be the first round of the 3A Sub-State on Tuesday night at 7:00 against Clay Center.

We will announce the winners each week. Remember, you can nominate an athlete from any school sport.
