- Madison junior Nick Macon has been named Indiana Basketball Coaches Association/Subway Player of the Week for District 3.
Macon, a 5-foot-11 guard, triggered Madison's upset of No. 1 and unbeaten Greensburg with 34 points on 7-of-14 shooting from behind the arc as well as seven assists. He scored 30 of those points in the second quarter as the Cubs erased a 21-point deficit and hit the 3-pointer as time expired to send the game into overtime.
Macon is the second Cub to be honored by the IBCA this month. Senior Landon Perry won the award three weeks ago.

She followed that effort with a career-high 25 points, adding nine rebounds, three assists, and four steals in an 88-77 overtime win at Defiance Saturday.
