Mike Moser’s efforts in the UNLV basketball team’s 65-63 victory Saturday against San Diego State earned him Mountain West Conference Player of the Week honors for games through Feb. 12.
The sophomore forward had 19 points and game-high nine rebounds in the win, adding six steals and four blocked shots to help UNLV snap a six-game losing skid against the Aztecs an move into a three-way tie for first place in the league.
This is the fourth time Moser has received the weekly honor, winning in consecutive weeks in late November and in late January.
Moser’s biggest play Saturday came with less than one minute remaining when he stripped Xavier Thames on a drive to the lane. Anthony Marshall scooped-up the loose ball, dribbled the length of the court and converted the game-winning layup.
The 6-foot-8 Moser is averaging a UNLV-best 14.8 points and 11.4 rebounds per game this year.
