A previous poster said they don't care about individual accomplishments. OK. I thought maybe this was the week that the Aggies had a player in Jahmar Young who would be named the league's Player of the Week. Ultimately it isn't about individual accomplishments, which was proven with the selection of San Jose State's Adrian Oliver whose team won big home games against Louisiana Tech and NMSU over the weekend.

On the week, Oliver averaged 30.5 points, 5.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game. He shot 54.3 percent (19-of-35) from the field, 44.4 percent (4-of-9) from three-point range and was 19-of-20 from the free throw line.

Young and the Aggies went 1-1 on the road, hitting the game-winner against Hawaii and posting a career best 34 at San Jose. Young averaged 30 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.6 assists and shot 24 of 47 (51 percent)

Perhaps it the Aggies would have held on, they would have their first weekly award, but with the way that Gibson and Young share scoring honors so often, who knows when either one will have such an explosive weekend.

He's the best "scorer" I've ever seen in an NMSU uniform. The earliest player I remember is Steve Colter.

The best "player" I've ever seen in crimson would have to go to Sam Crawford. He was a great great guard that took us to the sweet 16. Randy Brown is a close 2nd.
