Carlson, one day after his triple-double, scored a career-high 28 points and made 16-of-18 free throws at Beloit College.  He was named the Midwest Conference Player of the Week January 24, the first Prairie Fire men’s basketball player to win the award since Grant Kluge received the honor in February of 2008.

Carlson finished the season averaging 12 points per game and led the Prairie Fire with 4.9 assists per game…
