Jalen James put up stellar numbers in the Spartans upset of Houston on Saturday, getting just the second triple-double in San Jose State history and just the third in Mountain West history.
He was rewarded Monday with a share of the Mountain West Conference co-player of the week honors with New Mexico’s Cameron Bairstow.
James is the fifth player in the NCAA to have a triple-double this season, getting 12 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in the Spartans’ 72-68 win over the Cougars, but he is the first freshman this season to do so.
