And last but certainly not least, Dylan Royer from Cal Poly has won StatSheet's Big West 6th Man of the Week. Ennis tallied 3.5 rebounds per game, 9.5 points per game, and 50% shooting. The Long Beach State junior marched the 49ers to a victory versus BYU-Hawaii and a loss to Louisville.

Ennis added 12 points and 3 assists in 33 minutes in a 79-66 loss to Louisville. He followed that up with 7 points and 3 rebounds in a huge 79-43 win over BYU-Hawaii.

This is the first StatSheet Big West Player of the Week honor for James Ennis. The runner-up this week is Orlando Johnson, a senior from UC-Santa Barbara. Honorable mention goes to senior Jaime Serna from UC-Santa Barbara. The highest ranking player from UC-Irvine was Michael Wilder who finished sixth.

In a 74-67 loss to Cal State Bakersfield, Hicks rang up 10 points and 9 rebounds. Following that in a 71-58 loss to Santa Clara, he led scoring with 18 points and rebounding with 8.

This marks the first time this season that Stephen Hicks has won the StatSheet Big West Freshman of the Week. The runner-up is T.J. Taylor from UC-Santa Barbara.
