NAPERVILLE, Ill. - Utah Valley's Geddes Robinson was named the Great West Conference Player of the Week on Monday. It's the second time in the season's first three weeks that Robinson, who shared the award with Marcus Davis of Houston Baptist, has received the honor.
"He's playing well for us," said coach Dick Hunsaker of the senior forward, who was named to the GWC Preseason All-Conference second team.
Robinson scored 12 points, pulled down 15 rebounds and had three steals in a 67-59 loss at SEC Arkansas and followed that performance up three days later with 16 points and 11 rebounds in an 89-83 loss at two-time defending Summit League champion Oakland. He currently ranks sixth in the nation in rebounding with 11.8 per contest.
UVU hosts Northern Illinois Monday night before heading to Laramie to face Wyoming Wednesday night.
