Athletes of the Week

Dane Plock

February 06, 1996

Estancia, Senior


Plock had two outstanding performances in Pacific Coast League play last week, but only one looked great in the box score. Friday, he scored 23 points, making five of 10 three-point shots, including the game-winner at the buzzer, in a 51-48 victory over host Costa Mesa. He scored 17 points in the second half. Wednesday, he scored only seven points in another 51-48 victory, this one over Laguna Hills, but without his clutch performance the Eagles might have lost. With Estancia leading by one and 10 seconds left, he made two free throws to provide the final margin. At the end of the third quarter, he made three free throws after being fouled while taking a three-pointer. He had four assists and only two turnovers.
