Wyoming's Leonard Washington has been selected as the StatSheet Mountain West Player of the Week for the week ending January 28th. StatSheet's Mountain West Freshman of the Week goes to Fresno State's Marvelle Harris.
Washington led all of the Mountain West in blocked shots (3.5 per game). He also put up great stats in shooting (50%), scoring (16 pts per game), and rebounding (8 per game). The Wyoming senior put these numbers up in losses to UNLV and Air Force.
Washington topped all rebounding for the Cowboys with 7 while also adding 4 blocked shots in a 62-50 loss to UNLV. He followed that up with a team-leading 19 points and 9 rebounds in a 57-48 loss to Air Force.
