Lee Cummard -- Men's Basketball -- Junior -- Mesa, Ariz.
Junior Lee Cummard led No. 21 BYU to a 78-54 road win at Portland Saturday with a game-high 18 points and a career-high six assists. The 6-foot-7 guard shot 77.8 percent from the floor and 75 percent from behind the arc against the Pilots, making 7-of-9 field goals and 3-of-4 treys. His seven field goals made equaled a career-best total.
He scored nine of BYU's first 18 points of the game to help the Cougars build an early lead at 18-11. He finished the first half with a game-high 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting, including 2-for-3 on threes. While dishing out a career-high six assists on the night, he didn't commit a turnover and added four rebounds and one blocked shot in his 30 minutes of action.
Harvey Unga -- Football -- Freshman -- Provo, Utah
Freshman All-American Harvey Unga ran for 161 yards and had a career-high four touchdown performance in the Cougars' 48-27 victory over San Diego State. Unga was also credited with three receptions for 29 yards to total 190 all-purpose yards against the Aztecs. Unga, who has compiled 1,211 rushing yards and 629 receiving yards, is the Cougars' all-time leading freshman running back and the first BYU freshman to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark in a single-season. He holds the school record for most 100-yard rushing games as a freshman with seven. Unga has put together three-straight 100-yard rushing games, equalling the third highest consecutive 100-yard games in MWC history. Unga's 24 points against the Aztecs also equals the fifth highest single-game scoring total in league history. His performance; however, is a Mountain West Conference single-game freshman scoring record. Unga's 1,211 rushing yards marks the most yards since Doak Walker Award winner Luke Staley racked up 1,582 yards during the 2001 season. Unga's mark ranks fourth all-time in BYU history. Unga needs just five yards to become BYU's all-time leading freshman running back.
Jan Jorgensen -- Football -- Sophomore -- Helper, Utah
Sophomore MWC Defensive-Player-of-the-Year candidate Jan Jorgensen was credited with a sack for a nine-yard loss, giving him a league-leading 11.5 sacks on the season.
