FARMINGTON, Utah (December 28, 2020) – Idaho State sophomore post Brayden Parker put together a career week to garner Big Sky Men’s Basketball Player of the Week accolades.

In a weekly split at Northern Colorado last week, Parker averaged 23.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game while shooting 67 percent from the floor.

The Preston, Idaho, native set career highs of 21 points and 10 rebounds on 8-of-11 shooting in a narrow 69-64 loss to the Bears on Tuesday.
