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.

  1. Rebels moved up to #11 in coaches poll.

  2. Was his cutout also honored?

    Wasted opportunity.

  3. POY.

  4. The cut out should be honored as Co-MWC Player of the Week. That thing was AWESOME.

    Props to The Rebellion.

  5. Moser's cutout was the greatest fathead I have ever seen. Everytime I saw it I busted up laughing.

    Well deserved Moser, keep it up!

  6. please stick around next year.

  7. How do you not love this kid? MOZILLA.

  8. UCLA has to be wondering what they were thinking about with not playing Mike. Wooden probably rolled over in his grave thinking about 3 very good players transfering. Good job Mike you really play hard and use your outstanding abilities to the max.
