Lohner named WCC freshman of the week
SAN MATEO, Calif. — The West Coast Conference has named BYU forward Caleb Lohner WCC Freshman of the Week, presented by University Credit Union.
It's his second freshman of the week award this season.
The 6-8 forward from Dallas, Texas, put up a career-high 19 points on Thursday at Pacific and then followed up that performance with 18 points at LMU, leading BYU to two big road wins after having 10 days off. He shot 12-for-18 from the field, including 7-for-9 from beyond the arc. Lohner continues to lead BYU in rebounding this season, averaging 6.7 boards per game, after pulling down a combined 16 in last week’s games. He’s sixth in the WCC in rebounding. Lohner also had four steals, three assists and one block last week. His most high-flying moment was this alley-oop dunk against Pacific.

He leads the WCC in 3-point percentage in conference play among players with at least 11 attempts, hitting 12-of-20 for a 60 percent clip. Lohner has hit 9-of-11 from deep in the month of February.
