Pair of former NWAACC stars earn GNAC Player of the Week honors
|Asutin Bragg tallied a rare triple-double in WWU's 99-76 win over Alaska Anchorage.|
The first triple-double in the GNAC in more than 10 years has earned Western Washington's Austin Bragg the GNAC Men's Basketball Player of the Week award.
Bragg was a first-team NWAACC Western Region all-star and all-defensive team pick for Clark College in 2012.
It is the second time this season and the third time in his two-year WWU career that Bragg, a 6-foot-9 senior from Longview (graduate of Mark Morris High School), has earned the honor.
Bragg had 31 points, 26 rebounds and 13 assists, and recorded just the second triple-double in WWU history and only the third in GNAC history in leading the Vikings to wins over Alaska Fairbanks, 53-51, and Alaska Anchorage, 99-76.
Central Washington University senior Josh Potter earned Great Northwest Athletic Conference Baseball Player of the Week for his contributions to the CWU baseball team this past weekend in San Francisco.
Potter, an alum from Pierce College who helped lead the Raiders to the 2012 NWAACC championship, earning Tournament MVP honors, hit 5 for 8 on the weekend with a pair of doubles, two runs scored and two RBI as the Wildcats split a doubleheader with San Francisco State.
Potter did not strike out and notched a slugging percentage of .875 with his offensive production. In addition, Potter played flawless defense at first base, logging 15 put outs and one assist with no errors in his team-high 16 chances.
