Northwestern State basketball coach Mike McConathy is asking for 15-20 seconds of your time every day this week

NSU-Zeek Woodley dunking

That’s all it takes to visit and click on a button to vote for NSU senior star Zeek Woodley in online voting in the finals of the national Dark Horse Dunker contest. The winner gets an expense-paid trip to the NCAA Final Four to compete March 30 on ESPN in the State Farm Slam Dunk and 3-Point Championships.

Woodley has outpolled competitors in first-round, quarterfinal and semifinal matchups since Feb. 14. His final round contest wraps up Friday at noon.

Votes can be cast each day from any hand-held, laptop or desktop computer. Woodley, a native of rural DeSoto Parish, missed 15 games of his senior season with a broken wrist, but came back to play the Demons’ final four games and led them to victory in the last three.

In the season-ending win over Central Arkansas, Woodley became the leading scorer in 105 years of NSU basketball, breaking a 40-year-old career record and finishing with 2,033 points. He is on course to graduate this year.

  1. What an awesome young man, not only for his contribution to our Demon Basketball team & our University, but he is genuinely a nice guy and I would consider him a very good roll model should I have a young child or grand-child for him to mentor. Congratulations to Zeke on what I am convinced will be a successful future, be it on the basketball court or in any other career that he may choose to embark on after graduation. I would also like to add, and I am sure this young man would be the first to agree, that congratulations are also in order for Coach Mike, for bringing out the very best in the young men that who come under his guidance. Parents who send their young men off to college can rest assured that their child will be in good hands with Coach. He is more than a Basketball Coach….he is a Leader among Men, and his players know and respect that.
