LAS VEGAS (AP) — UNLV forward Shakur Juiston has been named the Mountain West Conference men's basketball player of the week after averaging a double-double in a pair of victories over Mississippi Valley State and Northern Colorado.

The junior from Newark, N.J. scored a career-high 30 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as the Rebels defeated Northern Colorado 94-91 Friday in their final non-conference game of the season.

He had 12 points and 10 rebounds in the 95-63 win over Mississippi State last Wednesday to average 21 points and 11 rebounds over the two games.

Juiston shot 73.1 percent from the field (19-of-26) and added four assists and two steals for the week.
