Kenny McGowen Named Big Sky POW

Kenny McGowen of Idaho State was able to break Charles Odum's two-week POW streak, winning the award for the first time his career.

McGowen scored 18 points with five steals, four assists and three rebounds and five steals as the Bengals beat Northern Colorado 99-94 in double overtime on Thursday, Jan. 26.

McGowen converted a 3-point play with 29 seconds remaining in the first overtime to tie the game and send it to a second overtime.

McGowen scored a game-high 19 points and hit the game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer as the Bengals beat Weber State 64-62, handing the Wildcats their first conference loss and ending their 10-game winning streak. McGowen was 7-of-14 from the floor, and 4-of-9 from 3-point range. He also had two assists, a steal and a rebound in 37 minutes of action.
Certainly a well deserved award.

Other Candidates: Laron Griffin (EWU), Will Cherry (Montana), Shawn Reid (MSU), Tevin Svihovec (UNC), Chehales Tapscott (PSU), Jackson Carbajal (Sac), Damian Lillard (WSU)
