Jacobsen earns honors

SNOQUALMIE — Former Mount Si. basketball player

Mick Jacobsen of North Bend earned the Cascade Conference Player

of the Week honor for Western Baptist College.

Jacobsen, a junior, scored 39 points while making 18 of 19

field goal attempts during the January 27 game that topped

Albertson 79-65.

Jacobsen’s 18 of 19 field goal attempts is one of the top

single-game field goal percentages (.947) in Western Baptist history.

This career scoring night, coupled with a 13-point

performance in Western’s 89-72 victory over Eastern Oregon, helped

earn him the award.

At the time of the award, the Warriors had a 19-5 overall

season record and were 10-1 in the NAIA Division II Cascade

conference, tied with fifth ranked Oregon Tech.
