USD junior guard Mitchell Bouie has been named the Great West Conference Player of the Week, the league announced on Monday. Bouie is the second Coyote to earn the weekly honor this season.
A native of Chicago, IL, Bouie was a sparkplug off the bench in South Dakota's two contests at the Drake Invitational over the weekend. On Friday, he notched 11 points and three rebounds against the host Bulldogs, while he added another 14 points and six rebounds in USD's 89-77 win over Binghamton on Sunday. In total, Bouie hit 10-of-13 (77 percent) from the floor and 5-of-5 (100 percent) from the charity stripe to earn all-tournament honors. He has scored in double figures for the Coyotes in the past five games.
South Dakota continues its season against Wyoming in Laramie at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 20.
