We love our college basketball in the Brooks family … and we had a chance to check out one of the area’s top players on Saturday.
And he’s from South Milwaukee.
Austin Stueck is a senior at the Milwaukee School of Engineering, where he has scored 1,792 points after his 27 in Saturday’s loss to Aurora.
The 6-foot-3 forward is third on the all-time scoring list at MSOE and second all-time in the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference. This year, Austin is averaging more than 20 points, seven rebounds and four assists per game.
Just as importantly, the 2012 South Milwaukee graduate is majoring in architectural engineering and construction management, according to his bio.
(In that bio, check out video of his two buzzer-beaters in five days from 2014.)
