LAS VEGAS, NV – Runnin’ Rebel junior forward Khem Birch has been named Mountain West Men’s Basketball Player of the Week.

In two wins last week, Birch averaged 11.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and 3 blocks per game. This marks the second time this season a UNLV player has earned the honor.

Roscoe Smith, who’s been ruled out for Wednesday’s regular-season finale against the Aztecs because of a concussion, was named Mountain West Player of the Week in late December.
