Lewis-Clark State College’s Jacob Champoux was named the Frontier Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week, league officials announced on Monday.
Champoux, a junior guard from Seattle, Wash., had 23 points and hit the game-winning shot in last week’s comeback victory over Montana Tech. He finished 9-of-13 from the field after scoring the team’s final eight points on 4-for-4 shooting in the final two and a half minutes.
He hit the game-winner on a pull-up jumper in the lane with two seconds left in regulation. The No. 11-ranked Warriors had trailed the entire way, including by as many as nine in the second half.
The victory kept the Warriors undefeated at 14-0 overall and 2-0 in league play.
Champoux is the second Warrior to receive the honor this season. P.J. Bolte picked up the award on Nov. 12.
After two straight conference matchups, Lewis-Clark State’s next two games will come against non-league foe Concordia (Alberta). The Warriors host the Canadian school on Sunday and Monday. Both games will tipoff at 4 p.m. inside the LCSC Activity Center.
