EASTERN'S SMITH NAMED CCC PLAYER OF THE WEEK
The Cascade Collegiate Conference named Eastern Oregon's Larry Smith as the men's basketball Player of the Week.
Smith, a 6-foot junior guard from Oroville, Calif., led Eastern to wins over Great Falls, Carroll and Walla Walla. He is averaging 30.2 points a game and is shooting 22-of-41 (53.7 percent) from behind the three-point arc.
Smith scored 36 points Wednesday in a loss against Western Oregon. That broke Smith's own record from earlier in the season for the most points scored by a Mountaineer since Brant Mayo's school-record 53 points against Albertson College in 1992.
