For the fifth time this season, Damian Lillard has been named the Big Sky POW. It is no surprise, as he had an incredible past two games.
The 6-foot-3 junior guard from Oakland, Calif., averaged 37.5 points, five assists, two rebounds and one steal per game as the Wildcats earned home wins over Portland State and Northern Colorado. Lillard shot 69.7 percent from the field, 64.7 percent from 3-point range, and 70 percent from the free-throw line. He also scored his 1,700th career point and moved into 12th place on the Big Sky’s all-time scoring list.Certainly very well deserved. Lillard was also named Andy Katz of ESPN's Co-Player of the Week.
Other candidates were: Cliff Ederaine (EWU), Kenny McGowen (ISU), Kareem Jamar (MT), Jourdaine Allou (MSU), Tate Unruh (UNC), Charles Odum (PSU), Joe Eberhard (CSUS)
