Ward, a native of Wisconsin Dells, Wis., garnered the award after averaging 26.3 points per game, 11.7 rebounds and 3.6 blocks. He hit 60.7 percent from the field on 34-for-56 shooting to help lead Lakeland to a 2-1 record in league play last week.
The 6-foot-10 forward had two double-doubles last week, including a game-high 29 points and a career-high 18 rebounds in the Muskies' 92-79 win over Aurora University on Jan. 21, and 28 points and 10 rebounds in a heartbreaking loss to Concordia University Wisconsin on Jan. 17.
