Suburban grad shines for Dickinson
York Suburban High School graduate Ted Hinnenkamp started the 2015-2016 basketball season by being named a Sporting News Preseason All-American in early November.
Over the ensuing three months, Hinnenkamp has lived up to that billing.
The 6-foot, 7-inch Dickinson College senior was named the Centennial Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the third time this season on Monday.
Hinnenkamp had a huge week, leading the Red Devils to a 3-0 mark, including a win over Swarthmore, the second-place team in the Centennial Conference. Hinnenkamp shot a sizzling 70.3 percent from the field for the week, hitting 26 of 37 field goals, including 2 of 3 from 3-point range.
He was the leading scorer in all three games last week, hitting 8 of 10 free throws while averaging 20.7 points and 5.0 rebounds. In addition, Hinnenkamp dished out five assists, made five steals and blocked six shots. He became the fourth Red Devil in three seasons to reach the 1,000-point milestone on Monday, Feb. 8.
The Red Devils, the defending Centennial Conference champions, have won five straight games to improve to 11-12 overall and 10-6 in the Centennial Conference. They wrap up the regular season this week with road games at Johns Hopkins University on Wednesday and Franklin & Marshall on Saturday.
For the season, Hinnenkamp leads Dickinson in scoring (16.7 points per game) and rebounding (8.0 per game). He's shooting 54.3 percent from the field, 37.1 percent from 3-point range and 72.1 percent from the foul line.
