Mountain West Announcement

Las Vegas, Nev. --- The All-Mountain West teams were released by the conference on Tuesday and the league's head coaches have tabbed San José State's Ryan Welage All-MW honorable mention.

Welage receives the honor after leading SJSU in scoring 18 times during the regular season. He had 13 games of 20 or more points and two 30-point games, including his career-high 37 points against Wyoming on Jan. 27. The Greensburg, Ind., native is the league's most accurate free throw shooter at 87.5 percent (98-112), while making 45.7 percent of his shots from the field.

The Greensburg, Ind., native is the fifth Spartan to earn all-conference honorable mention, and the first as a member of the Mountain West.

Welage and the #11-Spartans take on #6-Wyoming on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. in the opening round of the Mountain West Tournament inside the Thomas & Mack Center.
