University of Colorado at Colorado Springs guard Nic Fuller was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference East Division player of the week, the conference announced Monday.

Fuller hit a pull-up jumper with 9.7 seconds remaining to lift UC-Colorado Springs to a win over Fort Lewis on Saturday, 89-87. Against the Skyhawks, he notched 23 points and shot 58.3 percent from the floor (7-12). The next night against Mesa State, Fuller contributed 16 points, eight assists and made 6-of-8 field goals, including all four attempts from long range.

He made 6-of-7 from three-point range for the week and is now shooting 60.9 percent from long range. He currently leads the RMAC in 3-point percentage and assists (4.79 per game). He is also 12th in scoring, eighth in field goal percentage, fifth in free throw percentage and fourth in assists-to-turnover ratio.

It's the fourth time this season a UCCS player has been named player of the week. Patrick Hannaway has received the honor three times.
