As good as he looked Thursday night, he looked downright unstoppable on Saturday night. And for those efforts, a player of the week award!

Montana Grizzly basketball standout Jamar Akoh was named Monday the Big Sky Conference Ready Nutrition Player of the Week, the first for a Griz this season.

In wins over North Dakota and Northern Colorado, Akoh had 56 points (34 of them Saturday night) and 19 rebounds, along with some assists and great defensive plays.

The Griz have now won six of their last seven games, are a perfect 7-0 at home this season and 4-0 in Big Sky Conference play. You won't get a chance to cheer for them at home again until January 25, as things will be pretty intense the next two weeks, with trips to Sacramento, Portland and Bozeman on the schedule.

Congrats to Jamar and the entire team for the excitement and fire power they've had on display. Grizzly Basketball is lookin' good!
