WHITEFISH -- Montana Tech junior Taylor England was selected the Frontier Conference men's basketball player of the week, the league announced on Monday.
England, a 6-foot-7 forward from Helena, averaged 23.5 points and 11.5 rebounds per game in a pair of Oredigger victories this past weekend. England’s two double-doubles were his fourth and fifth of the season.
England shot an impressive 88 percent (23 of 26) from the field, while also tallying 23 rebounds, six steals and five blocks in the two wins over Concordia Edmonton.
England is the second Oredigger men’s basketball player to earn the award this season, with Sindou Diallo earning the award in mid-November.
The Orediggers return to action on Jan. 9 when they take on Rocky Mountain College in Billings at 7:30 p.m. at First Interstate Arena.
