KU senior Ethan Ridgeway is already breaking records and earning accolades early this season.
Right off the bat Ridgeway broke his own school record with 16 assists in the season-opener against Penn State Schuylkill.
Following that performance, in a three-game week Ridgeway averaged 31 points-per-game, 5.3 assists-per-game and shot 61.5 percent from beyond the three-point line.
The KU senior scored a career-high 40 points against California on Nov. 18 becoming the third player in KU history to score 40 points in a game. The following day, Nov. 19, Ridgeway continued to dominate by putting up 30 points and nine assists against Slippery Rock.
These performances earned Ridgeway the PSAC East Co-Athlete of the Week award, sharing the award with Tyrell Long of West Chester.
On top of the Co-Athlete of the Week award, Ridgeway was also named the U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Division II Men’s Basketball Player of the Week, the first of the season.
