BOSTON (MA) -- Long Beach State's Nick Faust earns Lou Henson award national player of the week honors.

The 6-foot-6 senior helped the 49ers to a pair of road wins last week. Last Thursday he posted a career-high 34 points and had eight rebounds against UC Santa Barbara. He followed that up with 28 points and a career-best 14 rebounds at Hawaii.

The Lou Henson Award is presented annually to the top Mid-Major player in Division I college basketball.

The award is named in honor of Lou Henson who retired after a spectacular coaching career that lasted 41 years. When he left the game in 2005 he was sixth all-time in career Division I wins with 779. He is the winningest coach at both Illinois and New Mexico State. He is one of only 12 coaches in the history of the game to take two schools to the Final Four.
