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
