Ivey receives co-player of the week honors

Portland State men’s basketball player Jeb Ivey has been named Big Sky Conference co-Player of the Week following his performance in the Vikings’ wins over Weber State and Idaho State last weekend.

In the 83-77 win over Weber State, Ivey scored a game-high 20 points on Friday. The junior guard scored 16 points in the final 4:30 of the game, including 4-4 from three-point range. Ivey added four assists and no turnovers in the game.

On Saturday, he posted a career-high 25 points. Ivey hit nine of 11 from the field, including five of seven from three-point range. He also had two assists and two steals.

In addition to his individual stats, Ivey led PSU to a school-record performance against Idaho State setting new team marks for shooting in a game (.654, 34-52) and three-point percentage in a game (.640, 16-25).

Ivey also extended his PSU-record streak of consecutive free throws made to 33. He has made 47 of 48 on the year (.979), but is two free throws short of qualifying for the Big Sky Conference season lead. He holds the lead in conference games in free throw percentage (1.000, 24-24) and three-point percentage (.559, 38-68).

Ivey shares this week’s award with James Clark of Montana State. Ivey is the third Viking to be named Big Sky Player of the Week this year. Both Anthony Lackey and Seamus Boxley earned the honor in December.
