St. Martin junior guard Jariyon Wilkens played a big hand in all areas of the game in a win over Pass Christian last week, earning him Sun Herald Boys Player of the Week honors.

Wilkens scored 14 points, grabbed five rebounds and came up with five steals in a 43-35 win over the Pirates at St. Martin on Dec. 4.

The 6-foot-3 Wilkens leads St. Martin (7-3) in scoring, averaging 15.2 points a game. He's also averaging 3.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.6 steals.
