CSU MBB Release: Stevens Named Mountain West Player of the Week
The Allen, Texas sophomore earned the award after leading CSU to a pair of last-minute wins over UNLV
FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State sophomore Isaiah Stevens has been named the Mountain West Player of the Week, the league announced today. It is the first weekly honor from the conference this season and second of his career. This is also a second award for the team this season, as sophomore David Roddy earned the accolade last week and the first time the program has had multiple winners in a single year since 2014-15.
The Allen, Texas guard led CSU to a pair of last-minute wins against UNLV, who was picked ahead of CSU in the preseason poll. For the two games, he averaged 23.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists on 50.0 percent on field goals, 64.3 percent on 3-pointers and 83.3 at the free throw line. In Thursday’s opener, he tallied 25 points (one off his career high which was in a triple-overtime game) with six rebounds and four assists in leading CSU from a 13-point deficit to the victory. He then tallied 22 points, six rebounds and eight assists, including the game-winning three-pointer (one of his career-best six threes in the game) with 25.9 to play and a pair of free throws to seal it in the final 15 seconds in the second win over UNLV on Saturday. In the series, he had his eighth and ninth 20+ point games of his career and 21st 5+ assist game, all while leading the Rams to their best Mountain West start in program history at 5-1.
The Rams return to the road to take on San Jose State in Phoenix, Ariz., Jan. 14 & 16. The games will be streamed on the MW Network. The audio will be on the Colorado State Sports Radio Network (along with online at CSURams.com), with Brian Roth on the call. CSU Sports Network broadcasts can be also accessed on mobile devices through the TuneIn app (free on all Apple, Android, Windows, Blackberry and Amazon Kindle devices) – once downloaded, search “Colorado St. Rams Sports Network” in the app for the games and coaches’ show broadcasts.
