The college basketball season is just a few weeks old, but Trevor Jasinsky is already making an impact.
The senior from Camas scored 30 points in Western Washington’s 90-80 loss to Azusa Pacific on Saturday. The 6-foot-8 forward also scored 24 points against both Cal Poly Pomona and Concordia Irvine.
For that, Jasinsky was named Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Week. It’s the second time he has earned that award, the other happening in November 2018.
Jasinsky ranks second in scoring among GNAC players at 21.6 points per game. He is 15 for 36 (41.7 percent) from 3-point range.
Jasinsky, a unanimous all-conference selection last season, is one of just 26 players in Western Washington history to have scored at least 1,000 points.
Other players from Clark County are off to fast starts.
