EL PASO, Texas -- It's been a roller coaster of a season for the UTEP basketball team, but on Monday some good news for forward Bryson Williams.
The redshirt junior was named Conference USA's co-player of the week.
Williams averaged 27.5 points per game 8.5 boards per contest, as Conference USA announced the forward as the men’s co-Player of the Week presented by Top of the World Monday afternoon.
Williams scored a career-high 34 points on 13-of-23 shooting and a 6-for-6 effort from the free-throw line during UTEP’s historic 24-point comeback against UTSA on Jan. 15.
The Miners rallied to win, 80-77 in overtime.
The Fresno, Calif., product also added 10 boards for his fourth career double-double in a UTEP uniform and seventh overall in his collegiate career.
On Saturday, Williams led the Miners with 21 points at UTSA, while grabbing seven boards and blocking two shots.
The Miners were down as many as 23 points, but rallied with a 17-2 run to get within six points with just over seven minutes remaining.
UTEP will continue its road swing with contests at Rice (Jan. 23) and at North Texas (Jan. 25).
