Associated Press

RENO, Nev. (AP) – Nevada’s Joey Shaw has been named the Western Athletic Conference men’s basketball player of the week after averaging more than 20 points and nine rebounds in a pair of games last week.

The senior swing man who played a season in the Big Ten at Indiana had a career-high 26 points on 9 of 12 shooting in a 112-99 victory over Houston Saturday night. Earlier in the week, he had 15 points in the Wolf Pack’s 88-75 loss at rival UNLV.

For the week, he shot 62 percent from the field, made half of his six attempts from 3-point range and missed only 1 of 13 from the free-throw line. He also had five assists over the two games.

The Wolf Pack (2-1) play Friday at Virginia Commonwealth in Richmond, Va.
