Biloxi guard Dontavius Proby is the Sun Herald Boys Player of the Week.

The junior guard averaged 17 points a game in two contests last week as the Indians (17-0) won the Jackie Laird Basketball Tournament over the weekend at the Biloxi Sports Arena.

Here’s what Proby did in those two tournament games:

▪ Scored 16 points in a 53-38 victory over Theodore (Ala.) in the first game on Friday night.

▪ Scored 18 points in a 58-43 victory over Vigor (Ala.) 58-43 in the finals on Saturday night.

Biloxi, ranked No. 1 in the Sun Herald’s prep basketball poll, doesn’t play until a road contest at Pearl on Jan. 5.
