Nico Carvacho named Mountain West Player of the Week

After helping lead Colorado State men’s basketball to its first two conference wins of the 2018-19 season, redshirt junior forward Nico Carvacho was announced as the Mountain West Player of the Week.

Carvacho averaged 21.5 points and 8.5 rebounds in victories over Air Force and New Mexico. So far this season, Carvacho is averaging 16.2 points and 12.4 rebounds per game. The 6-foot-11 forward also currently leads the conference in total rebounds (211) and rebounds per 40 possessions (16.8).

In Saturday’s victory over the Lobos, Carvacho passed Mike Childress (1969-71) as the No. 5 rebounder in CSU history.

Following back-to-back home victories over the Falcons and Lobos, the Rams will look for its first road victory over a conference foe on Saturday, when CSU faces Utah State in Logan, UT.
