ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – Time now for our Papa John’s Team of the Week. Remember, all you need to do to enter is shoot a note, here to enter. The whackier the team, the better.  If your guys or gals are picked you win Papa John’s pizza and a little TV time.

Our Papa John's Team of the Week is the Whuitfield Boys Basketball team. After their 54-47 win over Desmet on Friday, the Whitfield Boy’s Basketball team has the honor.

The Warriors had three players score in double figures, including Jacob Ekstrand with 14 points, Dimitri Rucker added 12, and Bryce Berry chipped in with 11.

Whitfield went 10-and-12 a season ago but brings back almost everybody from last year.

After their knee injuries Dmitri Rucker and DeVaughn Rucker are expected to have big seasons. And Ekstrand almost averaged a double-double last year.

Whitfield is off to a 2-1 start, making the Warriors this week’s Papa John's Team of the Week.
