Montana's Will Cherry has been selected as the Big Sky Conference men's basketball player of the week.

Cherry averaged 18.5 points, five rebounds and 4½ assists in victories over Portland State and Eastern Washington last week.

Cherry, a 6-foot-1 guard, scored 22 points as the Grizzlies defeated Eastern Washington on Friday. Most of his points came in the second half, as Montana rallied from a halftime deficit.

He also scored 15 points against Portland State last Wednesday.
