BOSTON (MA) -- South Dakota State's Mike Daum earns the Lou Henson award national player of the week honors.

The 6-foot-9 junior helped the Jackrabbits pick up a pair of wins last week to win the Summit League regular-season championship.  On Thursday Daum had 20 points and 12 rebounds against South Dakota. On Saturday he finished with 31 points and 13 points on the road at Fort Wayne.

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.
