Isaiah Stevens receives MW Player of the Week award

For the first time in the 2019-20 season, a member of the Colorado State men’s basketball team has been named as the Mountain West Men’s Basketball Peak Player of the Week. Freshman Isaiah Stevens used a pair of impressive performances the past week to take home the accolade for the first of his career.

Stevens has been an integral part of the Rams’ recent surge, and he helped CSU secure a pair of wins over conference opponents this past week, moving the Rams into a tie for second place in the conference standings with a 7-4 record.

Leading the way for CSU with 21 points in the 95-77 win over the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Stevens achieved 7-8 shooting from the field and knocked down all five of his 3-point shots. The game against UNLV served as the fifth time Stevens has surpassed the 20 point mark in a game this season.

Between the two games, the freshman averaged 16.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists. This was backed up by stellar shooting, with 68.8% from the field and 75% from the 3-point line. Stevens also nailed the game-winning shot as the buzzer sounded to put the Rams up 92-91 over Nevada

Stevens is the first Ram to win the award this season. The last player before him was Nico Carvacho, who took home the award Jan. 14, 2019

About the Contributor
Devin Cornelius, Digital Managing Editor
Devin Cornelius is the digital managing editor for The Collegian. He is a fifth-year computer science major from Austin, Texas. He moved to Colorado State University and started working for The Collegian in 2017 as a photographer. His passion for photography began in high school, so finding a photography job in college was one of his top priorities. He primarily takes sports photos, volleyball being his favorite to shoot. Having been on The Collegian staff for 4 1/2 years, he's watched the paper evolve from a daily to a weekly paper, and being involved in this transition is interesting and exciting. Although Cornelius is a computer science major, his time at The Collegian has been the most fulfilling experience in his college career — he has loved every second. From working 12-hour days to taking photos in Las Vegas for the Mountain West Conference, he cannot think of a better place to work. Working as a photographer for The Collegian pushed him outside of his comfort zone, taking him places that he never expected and making him the photographer he is today. As the digital managing editor, Cornelius oversees the photos, graphics and social media of The Collegian along with other small tech things. Working on the editorial staff with Katrina Leibee and Serena Bettis has been super fun and extremely rewarding, and together they have been pushing The Collegian toward being an alt-weekly. Outside of The Collegian, he enjoys playing volleyball, rugby, tumbling and a variety of video games. When in Austin, you can find him out on the lake, wake surfing, wake boarding and tubing. You can expect that Cornelius and the rest of The Collegian staff will do their best to provide you with interesting and exciting content.
