It’s that time again… Time for player of the week. To be in consideration guys had to play at least two games in the tournament, and with that we get into the nominees.
UAF: Travante Williams -two good games; 10 rebounds and 23 points against WWU, along with 23 points against WOU before fouling out.
WWU: Ricardo Maxwell -one good, one great game; put the team on his back against UAF, finishing with eight assists and 21 points.
SPU: Mitch Penner -After deferring to David Downs two years ago and Riley Stockton last year, this time it was Mitch’s turn; he finished with 26 points and seven boards against WOU, as well as eight boards and 25 points against CWU.
WOU: Devon Alexander -We’re so proud of him for the way he’s stepped up this year and the tournament was no exception; he received the official conference tournament MVP after having 16 points and 10 rebounds against UAF, as well as 19 points against SPU.
Player of the Week/Conference tournament will be up in an hour. Congrats to all six teams (Central Washington and Alaska Anchorage absolutely included) on six absolutely insane games -best GNAC tournament in many years- and once again: Thanks so much to Saint Martin’s for hosting.
