IUP senior forward Cobo Diaz has been named the first PSAC Western Division Athlete of the Week for men’s basketball. It’s his fourth career PSAC weekly honor.
Diaz scored 24 points in Friday’s eleven-point win over Concord and added 20 more on Saturday in the three-point defeat of Virginia State. For the weekend, Diaz shot 56.3 percent (18-of-32) from the field and averaged 6.5 rebounds per game.
Also yesterday, IUP named its Athletes of the Week, junior basketball players Lexi Griggs and Malik Miller. Griggs scored 15 and 14 points, respectively in the IUP women’s victories over Alderson Broaddus and Ohio Valley’s. Miller average 18.5 in the men’s two wins, including a career-high 24 in the Virginia State game.
Both IUP teams return to action tomorrow night at the Kovalchick Complex. The women play a non-conference game against PSAC rival Bloomsburg and the men take on Bowie State. We’ll be on the air at 5:15 PM on 92.5 FM U92 and the U92 Sportschannel.
