LOGAN, Utah - Utah State men's basketball player Jarred Shaw was named to the collegehoopsdaily.com Midseason all-Western Athletic Conference Team.
The publication announced a five-player awards list for each conference in Division I, and the five players selected for the WAC are the same as the publication's Player of the Month list for both November and December. Shaw was joined by San Jose State guard James Kinney, Louisiana Tech guard Raheem Appleby, Texas State forward Matt Staff and Idaho center Kyle Barone.
Shaw, a junior center from Dallas, Texas (Carter HS/Oklahoma State) is currently 13th in the WAC in scoring overall with 12.7 points per game, while ranking tied for 15th in WAC only games with 11.5 ppg. He also is fifth in overall rebounding with 8.6 rebounds per game and is fourth in league only games with 8.0 rpg. Shaw also is seventh in overall blocked shots per game (1.36) and is tied for seventh in conference only games (1.50), tying teammate senior forward Kyisean Reed. Additionally, Shaw is fifth in the league in overall field goal percentage (.537) and 14th in overall free throw percentage (.723). Shaw has five double-doubles on the season, including 12 points and 12 rebounds in USU's 82-75 overtime win over Idaho on Saturday.
USU, which is 13-1 on the season, is receiving a vote in this week's USA Today/Coaches Top 25 Poll. Overall, USU has now won 12-straight games to rank tied for the seventh-longest winning streak in school history, including being tied for the sixth-longest under veteran head coach Stew Morrill.
The Aggies are also in first-place in the Western Athletic Conference with a 4-0 league mark. After four games in a span of a week last week, Utah State only has one game this week, wrapping up a three-game homestand by hosting San Jose State (8-6, 3-1) on Friday, Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum. The game will be televised regionally on KMYU.
