University of Saint Francis juniors Scott Kohne and Skylarr Shurn have been named Crossroads League Player-ot-the-Week for men's and women's basketball.

It is the second time this season Kohne has been selected, while it is the first for Shurn.

The University of Saint Francis women's basketball team enjoyed a sparkling week, posting wins over two ranked league opponents.

Shurn was a pivotal part of the Cougars 62-55 upset of top-ranked Indiana Wesleyan. She popped in 25 points against the previously undefeated and top ranked Wildcats, and was a perfect 9-9 from the free throw line. A second victory over 24th-ranked Huntington capped off Shurn, and Saint Francis', 2-0 week.

The Kokomo High School graduate is No. 3 in overall CL scoring (15.6 ppg) and leads the conference in free-throws made with 100. She is No. 2 in free-throw percentage (.855) in the CL, No. 10 in NAIA.

Kohne is averaging a double-double – 20.3 points per game and league leading 10.5 rebounds per game after strong performances in a 1-1 week for the Cougars.

He tallied two double-doubles on the week, notching 26 points and 11 rebounds at sixth-ranked Indiana Wesleyan and 21 points and 19 rebounds in the Cougars' 61-50 victory at Huntington on Saturday.

The Bishop Dwenger High School alum holds five NAIA Top 10 stats rankings including No. 1 in Defensive Rebounds per game (8.0), No. 2 in total rebounds (230), No. 3 in total rebounds per game (10.5) and No. 10 in total blocks shots (41).

Kohne is No. 2 in league ppg (20.3/13th in NAIA Division II), but leads the league in points scored with 446. He is also No. 2 in the Crossroads League in blocked shots at 1.9 per game.
