Without a huge surprise, Eastern Washington freshman Venky Jois has been named the Big Sky Player of the Week. In last Friday's victory over Cal State Fullerton, he tallied 22 points and 13 rebounds on 10/14 shooting.
He has been one of the most pleasant surprises in the Big Sky this season, and currently leads the conference in rebounding. He has three double-doubles on the season, and is doing it all as a true freshman. Coach Jim Hayford has a great building block for the program for the next four season.
