Huntington, Ind.—The Huntington University Athletic Department announced its Athlete of the Week for the week of November 14-20, 2005. Men’s basketball junior Kyle Ganton earned the honor for his excellent efforts during the week’s competitions.

Kyle Ganton, an elementary education major from Coldwater, Mich. (Bronson High School), had an outstanding individual performance to help lead the Foresters to a 3-0 week. In Tuesday’s 110-66 win over Indiana Tech, Ganton had the hot hand, going 7-11 from the field, including 4-8 from behind the arc, for a team-high 23 points. In the Foresters’ opening round of their Hall of Fame Classic, Ganton scored 10 points in just 17 minutes of play in Huntington’s 93-45 rout of Lincoln Christian College, and in the championship game of the Classic, he scored a game-high 26 points on 6-9 shooting, hitting three of five treys and 11 of 11 free throws to help lead the Foresters to the 95-71 win over Georgetown College. Ganton’s performance earned him Tournament MVP honors. The Foresters (6-1) return to action on Tuesday, November 22, 2005, at 7 p.m. when they host Indiana Wesleyan University to open conference play.
