During the weekend, he set new franchise records for assists (39) and points (56) in a season. “Hunter had a fantastic weekend and produced offense when we needed it the most on Saturday night. He also broke two singles-season franchise records in the process of having a great weekend. We have relied on him all year and he has consistently shown up for our team and his teammates. We look forward to Hunter continuing his success the rest of this season,” said Minot head coach Cody Campbell.
