UNLV freshman forward Joel Ntambwe was named Mountain West player of the week.
He scored 22 points and had 11 rebounds in the Rebels’ 92-90 victory over Brigham Young on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena. It was Ntambwe’s first double-double.
His two free throws with 27 seconds left sent the game into overtime at 83-83.
Ntambwe is the first Rebel to win the weekly honor this season, and he ended a three-week stretch of honorees by UNR players.
