The double-double performance was the fourth of the season for the big man, which ranks 27th in the NCAA.  The 33 points were the most by a Pioneer player since Brian Stafford poured in 32 back on Nov. 11, 2011 against Portland State.  For the week, the 6-foot-10 center averaged 20.0 points per game and 6.0 rebounds in just 22 minutes per contest. He finished shooting 64.0 percent (16-for-25) from the field.  DU closes out its seven-game road trip this Tuesday with a contest at South Alabama. Tip-off is set for 6:05 p.m. MT.
