DENVER – New Mexico State forward David Fisher has been named the Western Athletic Conference men’s basketball player of the week for December 4-10.

Fisher, a senior from Dallas, Texas (Arkansas-Fort Smith), averaged 21.0 points and 8.0 rebounds in a pair of wins against rivals New Mexico and UTEP. He had a season-high 24 points on 10-of-11 shooting from the field with a game-high nine rebounds in a 103-72 win over New Mexico. He then added a game-high 18 points and seven rebounds in a two-point victory against the Miners. It was the first time since the 2002-03 season that New Mexico State swept its two rivals at home. It is Fisher’s first career WAC Player of the Week award and first for an Aggie player this year.
