The sophomore forward from Hazleton Area had a double-double in a strong all-around effort during Sunday’s 73-54 victory at Clarion. It was his second double-double of the week.
Samec averaged 13.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.0 blocked shots in 27.3 minutes per game during the week. He shot 47 percent from the floor and made 10 3-pointers.
