For the second time this season and fourth time of his career, Kyle Barone, Idaho's accomplished center, has been named the WAC Player of the Week. The conference's top rebounder and third-leading scorer strung together two more double-doubles last week — his 14th and 15th of the season. He had 26 points and 14 rebounds in a win at Texas State on Saturday that helped UI lock up the sixth seed in next week's WAC tournament.
Barone will be honored Saturday night as part of Idaho's Senior Night festivities. The Vandals (11-17, 6-11) host Seattle U at 7:05.
