Boys Basketball – Orthopaedic Institute Week 4 Player of the Week: Troy Buxton
Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey Week 4 Player of the Week
Troy Buxton, Lacey
Freshmen have made a noteworthy impact around the Shore Conference this year and few teams have gotten as much out of their rookies as Lacey has.
Last week, it was their freshman sharp-shooter who stole the show, particularly in a come-from-behind win over Toms River South. Buxton hit six of Lacey's 16 three-pointers in the win, 11 of which came during the second half to help the Lions overcome a double-digit halftime deficit.
Buxton finished with a career-high 26 points, then followed up a team-high 14 in a loss to Manchester a day earlier.
For winning the overall Player of the Week award, Buxton will receive a gift card to Surf Taco. He beat out Holmdel senior Derek Chan, Marlboro senior Alex Ratner and Neptune senior Azmere Wilson.
