GCU guard Joshua Braun named WAC player of the week

Grand Canyon guard Joshua Braun has been recognized as the Western Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for Dec. 15-21, the conference announced Monday.

The redshirt freshman averaged 18.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per game during the week, helping GCU to a 2-1 record during that span. The 6-foot-4 guard shot an impressive 66.7 percent from the field, including 54.3 from behind the three-point line, during those three games.

Braun’s biggest night was on Dec. 17 in a loss to Incarnate Word, as he shot 8-for-11 and finished with a career-high 22 points. Two days earlier, he pulled down a career-best eight rebounds in a victory over Bethune-Cookman.

The Anthem, Arizona, native scored in double-figures in all three games last week, and he has done so five times this season.

GCU currently stands second in the WAC with a 6-7 record. The Antelopes next face the 8-3 New Mexico Lobos on Tuesday in Phoenix.
