Lillard, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound junior guard from Oakland, Calif., averaged 23 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game as the Wildcats beat Southern Utah and lost at Brigham Young.I have the strange feeling this won't be the last time Lillard wins the award this season.
Lillard scored 31 points and dished out a career-high nine assists in Weber State’s 84-66 home victory over Southern Utah on Saturday. Lillard made 9-of-15 shots from the floor, was 5-of-8 from 3-point range, and 8-of-9 from the free-throw line. He also had three rebounds and a steal.
Other candidates were Cliff Colimon (EWU), Kenny McGowen (IdSt), Kareem Jamar (MT), Xavier Blount (MtSt), James Douglas (NAU), Chehales Tapscott (PSU), and John Dickson (CSUS).
