StatSheet's Big Sky Player of the Week for January 21st goes to Kareem Jamar from Montana. Eastern Washington's Venky Jois has won StatSheet Big Sky Freshman of the Week. And last but not least, Spencer Coleman from Montana has won StatSheet's Big Sky 6th Man of the Week. Jamar tallied 50% shooting, 7 rebounds per game, and 17.5 points per game. The Montana junior put these numbers up in victories against Southern Utah and Montana State.

Jamar posted 12 points and 7 rebounds in 34 minutes in a 73-67 win against Southern Utah. That was followed by a team-leading 23 points plus an additional 10 assists in a narrow 76-71 win over Montana State.

Kareem Jamar has been named StatSheet Big Sky Player of the Week one other time this season. He has also received an honorable mention. The runner-up this week is Troy Huff, a junior from North Dakota. Honorable mention goes to North Dakota junior Aaron Anderson. Tate Unruh was the highest ranking player from Northern Colorado, finishing fourth.

StatSheet Big Sky Freshman of the Week: Eastern Washington's Venky Jois

Venky Jois played an average of 35 minutes starting both games for Eastern Washington. His averages in rebounding (11.0 per game), blocked shots (4.5 per game), and shooting (60.0%) led all Big Sky freshmen. In a 65-47 loss to North Dakota, Jois rang up 12 points and 14 rebounds. In a 72-56 loss to Northern Colorado, he led all scoring and rebounding with 15 points and 8 rebounds.

Amazingly, Venky Jois has won the StatSheet Big Sky Freshman of the Week 3 times. The runner-up is A.J. Hess from Southern Utah. Marcus Colbert from Montana State takes honorable mention.

StatSheet Big Sky 6th Man of the Week: Montana's Spencer Coleman

Junior Spencer Coleman, a 6-6 reserve forward, averaged 28 minutes over the two games for the Grizzlies. In the win over Southern Utah, Coleman put up 100% shooting and 3 steals. During the win against Montana State, he racked up 10 points and 4 steals.

This is the first StatSheet Big Sky 6th Man of the Week award for Spencer Coleman. Our own Paul Garnica is runner up. Calen Coleman, a junior forward from Montana State, receives honorable mention. Northern Colorado has yet to win the StatSheet Big Sky Player of the Week award this season.
