Player of the Game: Alex Ruth

NORFOLK – “Hustle points” aren’t really quantified on the stat sheet, but Norfolk junior Alex Ruth embodies the kind of player that would be among the leaders in the state of Nebraska if such a stat existed.

Ruth didn’t score in Norfolk’s 35-28 win over Lincoln High, but she came off the bench with four rebounds and was seemingly always in the right spot for the Panthers: a back-tap off a missed free throw here, a key steal there.

Ruth has provided a spark for the Panthers off the bench all season, averaging 2.7 points and 3.9 rebounds per game.
