SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The West Coast Conference has named its Men's Basketball Player of the Week for February 9, 2015.
WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK - KYLE COLLINSWORTH, JR., G - BYU
BYU junior guard Kyle Collinsworth averaged 18.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.5 steals as BYU split a pair of road games at Pepperdine and Loyola Marymount. Against the Waves, Collinsworth registered a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds as the Cougars fell 80-74.
He helped BYU bounce back two days later with his NCAA-record setting fifth triple-double that included a career-high tying 23 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and three steals.
At LMU Collinsworth helped the Cougars start strong, scoring his team's first six points and 10 of BYU's first 17. He ended the half with 14 first half points, four rebounds, four assists and two steals as BYU led 40-30 at the break.
