(WDAZ-TV) - We received some fine nominations for our Taco John's Player of the Week, but we can pick only one and this week's honoree is Mike Paulson, the 6'5" senior basketball guard for Hatton-Northwood.

The award is given based on the athlete's performance of the previous week and Paulson had a nice pair of games last week at the District 3 tournament.

In Friday's quarterfinal against Central Valley, Paulson scored 23 points, hitting ten of 17 from the field and adding three rebounds and five assists.

And in Saturday's semifinal against Hillsboro, Paulson erupted for 38 shots on 12 of 20 shooting, with six rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Hatton-Northwood won the tournament on Monday.
