Mountain West Announces Men's Basketball Player of the Week

Nov. 12, 2012


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado State senior center Colton Iverson has been named Mountain West Men's Basketball Player of the Week for games through November 11. This is the first MW career weekly accolade for Iverson.

Playing in his first game in nearly 20 months, Iverson led Colorado State to a 72-65 victory over Montana in the Rams' 2012-13 season opener. Iverson, who sat out the 2011-12 season after transferring from Minnesota, posted a game-high 18 points on 5-of-8 (.625) shooting from the field and 8-of-12 (.667) shooting from the free-throw line. The Yankton, S.D., native also added eight rebounds, one assist and one steal against the Grizzlies. The combination of 18 points and eight rebounds gave Iverson the best debut for a CSU player since former Ram Andy Ogide opened the 2008-09 campaign with 20 points and 14 rebounds in another season-opening victory over Montana. With the victory, CSU tied a school record for consecutive home wins (14) and extended the program's streak of home-opening victories to 32.
