As the Boise State men's and women's basketball teams each went 2-0 last week, their guards earned Mountain West player of the week honors for their efforts.
Senior Derrick Marks was named the men's player of the week Monday after he scored 59 points combined in Tuesday's overtime win over UNLV and Sunday's win at New Mexico. Against the Lobos, he had 31 points on 10-of-16 shooting (10-of-11 free throws). He is the first player this season to earn the weekly nod twice.
"He was as good as it gets," New Mexico coach Craig Neal said.
