Central College junior forward Jacob Winkler is the Iowa Conference male athlete of the week. Winkler led the men’s basketball team to two victories last week, coming off the bench to average 18.5 points and 10.5 rebounds while shooting 62.5 percent from the floor. He had 14 points, six rebounds and five assists in a 90-87 victory over Loras and posted his fourth double-double of the season with 23 points and 15 rebounds, both career bests, in a 77-74 double-overtime win over Luther. It’s the first time Winkler has been cited. Central is 16-7 overall with an 8-6 league mark and has two regular season games remaining. The Dutch have already clinched a spot in the six-team league tournament beginning next Tuesday.
