Wages Named 2014's First Mines Student-Athlete Of The Week

GOLDEN – In leading the No. 13 Colorado School of Mines men’s basketball team to another 2-0 record over the weekend, senior center Trevor Wages has been named this week’s Mines Student-Athlete of the Week, athletic department officials announced Monday.

A Littleton native, Wages notched his fifth and sixth double-doubles of the season in wins over Western State (76-62) and Colorado Mesa (94-86) over the weekend in helping No. 13 Mines push its season record to 11-0, including a 7-0 mark in the RMAC. 

He opened with 15 points and 11 rebounds while adding three assists, two blocks and a steal in Friday’s win over the Mountaineers before closing the weekend with 14 points, 12 rebounds, an assist and a steal in Saturday’s 94-86 win over the Mavericks.

Saturday's victory marked the best start to a season in program history with the squad's 11th-straight win which eclipses the old mark of 10 consecutive that was set during the 2010-11 campaign. 

For the week, he shot 11-of-15 (73.3 percent) from the floor on the way to 14.5 points and 11.5 rebounds per game over the two-game stretch. A Preseason All-RMAC selection, Wages went over 1,000 career points in the squad’s 111-63 win over New Mexico Highlands on Dec. 7 in Golden. 

His pair of double-doubles over the weekend were the 27th and 28th of his career.

This is his second career Mines Student-Athlete of the Week award.
