McLennan Community College freshman Xavier Armstead has been tabbed as the North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference Player of the Week.

The guard from Midway shot 8 of 12 from the field in MCC’s 101-66 win over the Fort Hood Phantom Warriors last week, including drilling seven 3-pointers. He finished the game with 23 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals, and is averaging a team-best 14.8 points in 26.5 minutes per game.

Armstead and the Highlanders (11-1), who jumped six spots in this week’s NJCAA Top 25 to No. 17, will host unbeaten Eastfield (13-0) at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Eastfield is receiving votes in the NJCAA poll.
