SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named its Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for February 8, 2016. 

Junior guard Alec Wintering averaged 24.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 6.5 assists in leading the Portland Pilots to a road sweep over Pepperdine and Loyola Marymount last week. The Charlotte, N.C. native scored 19 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished out six assists in Portland's 73-70 upset win over Pepperdine on Thursday. He drilled the go-ahead three-pointer with the Pilots trailing by one and 1:06 left in regulation to hand the Waves their first home loss of the season.  

Wintering then erupted for 29 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in a 92-78 win at LMU. Wintering shot 59 percent from the field, made 7-of-12 three-pointers and 7-of-8 free throws in the two victories. The road sweep was the first for the Pilots over Pepperdine and LMU since 2009.
