Ryan Loberger

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
