Sophomore Packy Witkowski has been named the CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week presented by First Command as he led the Bears to a 93-88 overtime win over archrival Merchant Marine.
Witkowski had a game-high 25 points including a 3-pointer with 21 seconds left in overtime leading Coast Guard to its fifth straight win.
Coast Guard would score eight straight, including pair of 3-pointers by Witkowski, including one that gave the Bears a 79-77 lead with 1:24 left.
In the extra period, the Bears were a perfect 5 for 5 from the floor and scored the first six points of the overtime. As Kane had an old fashion 3-point play before Witkowski hit a trey with 3:41 left for an 85-79 lead.
Junior David Washington's tip-in with 46 seconds left pulled the Mariners to within 89-88 before Witkowski put the nail in the coffin with his 3-pointer with 21 seconds left.
Witkowski hit 7 of 13 from 3-point range in the win.
He leads the team with 19.7 points per game and has a team-high 22 treys (22-48).
Coast Guard has won five straight to improve to 5-1 on the season. The five straight wins is the most since the 2008-09 team won 13 straight before falling in the Elite 8.
The Bears are back in action on Saturday when they host Mitchell at noon.
