Espinoza, a 6-foot-3 senior, started his week with 27 points, 12 rebounds and four steals in a 66-53 win over Dublin. He also was key in a victory over state-ranked China Spring.

Espinoza went for 25 points, 15 rebounds and a steal. Ten of his rebounds were on the offensive end as the Yellow Jackets won 63-51 over the No. 11 Cougars.

It was a week that really stood out to first-year Stephenville coach Kia McCarty.

“Aidan is an undersized post that relentlessly attacks the glass and is constantly working to get great position,” McCarty said. “He doesn’t get outworked on the court and was a vital piece of winning two games this past week.”

The coach added that Espinoza is impressive off the court, too.

“He also takes dual credit college classes and participates in band,” McCarty said. “He is a great kid and I’m glad that he is on our team.”
