144 Wyoming student-athletes honored by Mountain West – K2 Radio

LARAMIE — Xavier DuSell is coming for my job.
The sophomore guard was named to the Spring Academic All-Mountain West Team Monday, joining 143 fellow University of Wyoming student-athletes on this list.
The Arizona product is studying, you guessed it, journalism.

How do you become a member of this team? First off, you possess a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. You have to compete in at least 50% of the team's competitions, too.
DuSell did more than that during the 2021-22 season, averaging 7.5 points per game while shooting nearly 36% from the field. His most productive outing of the year came against the No. 11 Arizona Wildcats, just 116 miles down the road from his hometown of Scottsdale.
That night, DuSell netted a season-high 22 points on 7-of-17 shooting. The sophomore also drained six triples in the loss.
That was his biggest statistical night, but a three with just 30 seconds remaining in the opening round of the Mountain West Tournament against UNLV may have saved the Cowboys from a trip to the NIT instead of the program's 16th appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
UW head coach Jeff Linder always speaks about DuSell's intelligence on the court. Apparently that's not a problem in the classroom, either.
Wyoming's women’s swimming & diving team collected the most honorees of any team with 38. The women’s track & field team in Laramie landed 35 members.
