BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Western Washington University forward Paul Jones has been named the Red Lion/Great Northwest Athletic Conference men's basketball Player of the Week for Dec. 23-31.
Jones, a senior from Kent (graduate of Kent-Meridian High School), had 26 points, six rebounds and two blocks in leading the Vikings to a 98-62 non-conference victory over Thompson Rivers BC.
