University of Wisconsin Superior’s Rafael Monteiro was named the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference Player of the Week.

The freshman, from Sao Paulo, Brazil, has made quite an impression in his first three games as a Yellowjacket, scoring 21 points in each game.

He has also averaged 7.3 rebounds per game, shot 55 percent from the floor, 54.5 percent (6-for-11) on 3-pointers and 13-for-13 from the free-throw line.

Add to that seven assists and just five turnovers, four blocks and three steals.

Men’s basketball

Monteiro led the Yellowjackets (1-3) in scoring again Tuesday night with 15 points, but it wasn’t enough as UWS lost to UW-Stout 95-60 in Menomonie.

Montroy Scott added 11 for the Yellowjackets, who trailed by 10 points midway through the first half and shot only 9-for-23 from the floor, which allowed Stout to open up a 44-26 halftime lead.

John Keefe led Stout with 32 points, including 19 in the second half. Keegan Dickson added 20 points.
