Damian Lillard Named Big Sky Player of the Week

Stop me if you have heard this before - Damian Lillard has been named the Big Sky Player of the Week. Again. For the fourth time this season. After a couple of phenomenal performances, he was the easy choice to win the award.

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound junior guard from Oakland, Calif., averaged 34 points, six rebounds, five assists, and one block per game. He shot 47.5 percent from the field, 57.1 percent from 3-point range, and 94.7 percent from the free-throw line.
Lillard continues to lead the nation in scoring at over 26 points per game.

Other candidates for the award were: Cliff Colimon (Eastern Washington), Melvin Morgan (Idaho State), Derek Selvig (Montana), Shawn Reid (Montana State), Tevin Svihovec (Northern Colorado), Chehales Tapscott (Portland State)

UPDATE: Lillard was also named the Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week. Congrats to him for the great honor!
