COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Utah center Andrew Bogut and Wyoming forward Justin Williams were named Mountain West Conference Men's Basketball Co-Players of the Week. Bogut garnered his fourth award this season and fifth for his career, while Williams earned his first career weekly honor.
A 7-0 sophomore from Melbourne, Australia, Bogut led the first-place Utes to a 2-0 record last week with conference wins over Colorado State and New Mexico. He scored 25 points and grabbed 18 rebounds in the road win over the Rams. Bogut tallied 24 points and grabbed a career-high 20 rebounds versus the Lobos, hitting 11-of-14 field goals, as well as blocking three shots. His 20-20 effort against New Mexico was one of only six in the nation this season and the second in MWC history.
For the week, Bogut averaged 24.5 points, 19 rebounds and two blocked shots, while shooting 60 percent from the field (21-for-35). He leads the MWC in scoring and rebounding this season tallying 19.7 and 12.3, respectively, per contest.
