Jan 8, 2024, 11:31 AM | Updated: 11:54 am

LOGAN, Utah – Mason Falslev has been playing with uncommon confidence. The redshirt freshman guard earned the Mountain West Freshman of the Week award for his efforts in two Aggie wins to open conference action.

The conference announced the award on Monday, January 8.

Three days later, the former Sky View Bobcat made his first start against a top-25 team count. He finished with 18 points, six rebounds, three assists, and a steal as USU knocked off the No. 13 CSU Rams 77-72. The numbers can’t tell the full story as Falslev’s defensive tenacity and unrelenting hustle always seemed to pop up when his team needed a boost.

For the week, Falslev averaged 18.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game, while shooting 63.6 percent (14-of-22) from the field and 77.8 percent (7-of-9) at the free throw line.
