Video: Khem Birch on repeating as Defensive POY, hip injury

UNLV forward Khem Birch became the third player in Mountain West Conference history to repeat as conference Defensive Player of the Year on Monday. The 6-foot-9 junior from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, who tied the Mountain West league mark for blocks with 69 in 18 league games, also was selected second team all-conference.

Birch discusses winning back-to-back Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year awards, a hip flexor injury that sidelined him for practice on Monday and also the Rebels mindset heading into this week’s Mountain West Tournament at the Thomas & Mack Center starting with a Thursday afternoon quarterfinal game against Wyoming.
