The Mountain West media announced its regular season awards on Monday, March 11.

No stranger to awards, Osobor’s career trajectory has been on an upward swing since long before the Bradford, England, native was named Big Sky Top Reserve last season with Montana State.

Osobor has been a standout player individually and played a crucial role in the team’s success. His ability to score with his back to the basket and make smart passes when needed has made him the Aggies’ go-to low post scorer. His role significantly contributed to the team’s top-seed position in the 2024 Mountain West Men’s Basketball Championships.

Osobor was the Mountain West’s third-leading scorer, averaging 17.6 points per game while connecting at a 57.2 percent rate (second). Not just an offensive weapon, the 6’8 wing led the league with nine rebounds, forced 1.3 steals (12th), and blocked 1.5 shots (third) per night.
