Webb Honored by MW Again
Jan. 4, 2016

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - For the second time in three weeks, Boise State forward James Webb III was named Mountain West Men’s Basketball Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday. Webb led the Broncos to a pair of victories last week, averaging 25.5 points and nine rebounds while shooting 61.5 percent from the floor. It is the second weekly honor of the season for Webb and the third of his career.

Webb was the MW Player of the Week for the week ending Dec. 20, as well. The redshirt junior has taken home each of the last two MW weekly awards he was eligible to receive as the Broncos did not play during the week ending Dec. 27.

In Boise State’s final nonconference game Wednesday, against UC Davis, Webb scored a game-high 23 points on 7-of-11 shooting and went 8-for-9 from the free throw line. He also added nine rebounds.

Webb poured in a game-high 28 points Saturday, in Boise State’s Mountain West opener against Colorado State. The 28 points are the most Webb has scored in a conference game in his career. He pulled down nine rebounds while recording three steals and two blocks.

Against the Rams, Webb scored 20 points in the second half—including all three of his three-pointers—as Boise State held off a CSU rally. The Broncos took a 14-point lead into halftime, but Colorado State scored the first eight points of the second half to cut the margin to six. From there, Webb scored 13 points in a span of 4:33 to ignite a 15-9 Boise State run which pushed the margin back to double figures.

Webb and the Broncos will be back in action Tuesday, at Utah State. The game tips off at 8 p.m. MT from Logan, Utah, and will be televised on CBS Sports Network. Boise State returns home Saturday, to host Fresno State at 4 p.m.
