Cutler named Frontier Conference Basketball Player of the Week

By Beacon Staff

Ben Cutler, a 2009 Glacier High School graduate, was named the Frontier Conference men’s basketball player of the week on Monday after a career-best scoring performance last week.

The Carroll College guard went 6-for-7 from 3-point range en route to 33 points, leading the Fighting Saints over Dickinson State 89-76 on Dec. 28.

Cutler has played impressively so far this season, much the same way he did in high school. The former all-state Wolfpack guard has played in all 12 games so far and has scored the second most points (115) on the team. He’s averaging 9.58 points per game and his 3-point shot is still on target, leading the team at 53 percent (23-for-43). He’s shooting 51 percent from the floor overall.

Also similar to his prep days, Cutler has found success on the track during the spring. Last year he qualified for the NAIA Track & Field National Championships in Marion, Ind., in the 400 and long jump. He advanced to the semifinals in the 400.
