LOGAN, Utah – Perfectly named Great Osobor after the junior wing put together two of his best performances in a pair of Utah State wins to open Mountain West play.

The conference announced the award on Monday, January 8.

Osobor kicked his Mountain West career off with a career-high 32 points in a win over Air Force. The Big Sky’s top reserve last season just missed out on his seventh double-double, finishing with nine rebounds, four assists, and a steal in the 88-60 win.

The Bradford, England native saved his best performance for a home game against No. 13 Colorado State, Osobor owned the paint from the opening tip, grabbing five offensive rebounds and getting to the foul line while his teammates struggled to hit shots. He finished the night with 20 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, and two blocks in a 77-72 Utah State win. Perhaps most important, Osobor drew nine fouls against CSU defenders.

For the week, Osobor averaged 26.0 points, 11.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.0 steals, and 1.0 blocks per game, while shooting 65.4 percent (17-of-26) from the field and 75.0 percent (18-of-24) at the free throw line.
