SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named its Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for January 11, 2016. 

Senior guard Kyle Collinsworth recorded his ninth career triple-double and helped BYU to a home sweep of Santa Clara and San Francisco. Collinsworth averaged 17 points, 8.5 assists, 7.5 rebounds and 2.5 steals. He also had an assist to turnover ratio of 5.7 to 1. 

Against Santa Clara, Collinsworth totaled 21 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals. He was 7-of-10 from the free-throw line and was 7-of-16 from the field.
