Here are the Wisconsin Sports Network weekly award winners in boys' basketball for the games played December 28 through January 2:

Player of the Week

Brennen Dvoracheck

Brennen Dvoracheck, 6-3, Jr., G/F, Reedsville
Dvoracheck has led a resurgence of sorts at Reedsville, helping the Panthers to a 7-2 record by averaging 18.4 points, 14.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists. The rangy, athletic and extremely active wing prospect is hoping to lead Reedsville to a winning record for just the second time in the past seven years. Last week, Dvoracheck and the Panthers handed Coleman (7-1) its lone loss of the season, 56-50. Dvoracheck made 11 of 15 shots from the floor, scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in the contest. A day later, coach Vince Denor's club sustained a 70-62 loss to Shiocton (7-3) despite 15 points and 14 rebounds from Dvoracheck. A second-team all-Big East Conference performer as a sophomore when he averaged 18.0 ppg and 12.5 rpg for a team that went 8-15, Dvoracheck currently ranks third in the state in rebounding. 

Team of the Week

Menomonee Falls Phoenix
After losing two of its first three games, Menomonee Falls has now won four in a row, including two highly impressive non-league victories last week. Coach Jason Hallenbeck's team defeated Kimberly 79-63 last Tuesday behind stellar games from two of the state's top class of 2022 prospects -- wing Steven Clay (6-5) and guard Seth Trimble (6-1). Clay scored 28 points and snared 12 rebounds against a Papermaker squad that features 6-foot-10 Grant Asman and 6-6 Jackson Dudek. Trimble, meanwhile, matched Clay's scoring output with 28 points of his own while also grabbing eight rebounds and handing out five assists. Saturday, the Phoenix turned back Arrowhead 74-63 as Trimble scored 30 points and Clay added 23. Menomonee Falls competes in the state's best conference, the Greater Metro, and returns to league play on Tuesday with a road contest at Wauwatosa West. 

Coach of the Week

Tom King, Laconia
It was far from easy, but Tom King notched his 300th victory as the head coach at Laconia last week with a 75-71 double overtime triumph over Kewaskum. Now in his 19th season as the head coach of the Spartans, King owns a 300-131 mark at the Wisconsin Flyway Conference school. Counting his 10 seasons as an assistant coach at Laconia, he has spent the last 29 years involved with the Spartans program. The 1972 Laconia graduate has led the program to seven conference championships and six WIAA regional crowns during his tenure. This year's club is 6-1 heading into Thursday's Wisconsin Flyway Conference game against Lomira and is led by seniors Caden Wittchow (16.5 ppg), Eli Leonard (15.6 ppg) and Aiden Pinno (13.6 ppg).
