Two from county earn weekly conference basketball honors at college level


Wildwood Catholic graduate Jahlil White and Cape May Tech graduate Josh Wright have each been honored for their recent exploits in men’s basketball.

White, a 6-7 freshman guard at Division I Temple University, has been named the American Athletic Conference (AAC) Freshman of the Week after averaging 13 points and 5.5 rebounds in a pair of Temple victories over Central Florida and East Carolina. He shot 65 percent from the floor over the two games.

White scored a career-high 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting in the win over UCF before tallying nine points and six rebounds in the victory over ECU. He also had a critical steal in the closing moments of the win over ECU.

White is averaging 5.8 points and 4.6 rebounds through 15 games. After coming off the bench early in the season, White has started each of the Owls’ last four games.

Temple (9-6 overall, 2-2 AAC) is next scheduled to play at Tulsa on Wednesday.


Wright, a 6-0 freshman guard at Division III Rowan University, has been named the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) Rookie of the Week after averaging 15 points over two recent conference games.

Wright first posted seven points, three steals, two rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes of action in an 89-84 victory over New Jersey City University. He then tallied a career-best 23 points while recording just one turnover in a career-high 37 minutes of action in a 66-60 loss to Rutgers-Newark in a game in which Rowan had just seven available players.

For the season, Wright is averaging 8.1 points and 1.9 rebounds.

Rowan (12-2 overall, 5-2 NJAC) is next in action Wednesday at Montclair State.
