Milford junior Andrew Rivera has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Feb. 26 through March 3. Rivera is the 24th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2023-24 school year and 11th in the winter season.

Rivera scored a team-high 24 points to along with eight rebounds and three steals to lead the No. 22 Hawks on a fourth quarter comeback to upset No. 11 Nashoba in the Div. 2 Round of 32. After Middleboro upset Hopkinton in the other first round game, Milford will host the No. 38 seed in the Sweet Sixteen on Wednesday night.

“Andrew covered Nashoba’s best player and did a really good job of containing him,” said Milford head coach Dana Olson. “Andrew is the focus of a lot teams defensively and he still finds ways of scoring and distributing the basketball to his teammates.”

On the road on Friday night, Milford fell behind going into the fourth quarter against Nashoba (36-32), but the Hawks rallied to pull out the 57-50 win. Rivera, who was the team’s leading scorer and third in the league at 19.1 point per game in the regular season, hit four field goals for eight of his 24 points in the final eight minutes and went 8-for-8 from the free throw line on the night. With Milford holding a 53-50 lead, Rivera came up with a steal and a layup with 13 seconds left to help clinch the win.
