Joaquim led the Warriors in scoring and rebounding with 29 points and 15 rebounds in an 81-66 loss to Ole Miss. That was followed by 12 points and 11 rebounds in a narrow 74-71 win over Cal State Northridge.

Honorable mention goes to Sammy Yeager, a senior from Cal State Fullerton. The highest ranking player from UC Irvine was Adam Folker who finished 14th.
StatSheet Big West Freshman of the Week: Hawaii's Isaac Fotu
Isaac Fotu averaged 23 minutes of playing time as a starter for Hawaii. He bested all Big West freshmen in both shooting (70.0%) and free throws (3.5 per game). In the loss to Ole Miss, Fotu rang up 11 points on 100% shooting. Then in the win against Cal State Northridge, he put up 16 points and 11 rebounds.
