Moser ties LJ with fourth Player of the Week award

Ho hum. Another week and another Mountain West Player of the Week award for UNLV forward Mike Moser.

The 6-foot-8 sophomore transfer from UCLA earned the honor for the fourth time this season on Monday, tying the school single-season individual record for such honors held by All-American forward Larry Johnson. Johnson won four Big West Conference Player of the Week awards during the 1990-91 season en route to garnering national player of the year honors.

“It’s just a big compliment for me and my teammates,” Moser said. “I couldn’t really ask for anything more.”



Moser scored a team-high 19 points and grabbed a game-high nine rebounds to help UNLV (22-4, 6-2) move into a three-way for first place in the Mountain West with a 65-63 victory over San Diego State (20-4, 6-2) on Saturday afternoon before a sellout crowd of 18,577 at the Thomas & Mack Center. He also recorded career highs in steals (six), including one that led to what proved to be the game-winning basket by Anthony Marshall with 37.6 seconds left, and blocks (four).

It’s the sixth Player of the Week for a UNLV player this season. The Rebels, who play at TCU (14-10, 4-4) on Tuesday night, moved up to No. 11 in both the Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ polls on Monday.
