University of Nevada, Las Vegas' return to winning ways helped garner an honor for the school's star basketball player.
Khem Birch was named Mountain West Player of the Week after registering 11.5 points and 11.5 rebounds per game in the Runnin' Rebels' two wins from last week.
The junior forward also shot nearly 70 percent from the field in the two wins at home against Colorado State and on the road against Air Force.
Birch and the Runnin' Rebels will close out their home regular season schedule against No. 10-ranked San Diego State University on Wednesday at 8:05 p.m.
