SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – North Dakota State's Vinnie Shahid claimed his second #SummitMBB weekly award of the season, league officials announced Monday. Shahid averaged 27.5 ppg and 3.0 rpg while combining for 10 3-pointers in a road win at Omaha and home win vs. Oral Roberts. NDSU now sits atop the league standings at 9-2, sharing the top spot with South Dakota State.

In the Bison's 83-76 win over Oral Roberts Sunday, Shahid scored a career-high 31 points on 8-of-14 shooting from the floor, which included a 6-for-10 effort from deep. He also drained all nine of his free throw attempts and his now 68-for-71 from the stripe in league play (95.8 percent).

For the week, Shahid shot 50 percent from the floor (14-for-28) and 3-point range (10-for-20) and made all 17 of his trips to the foul line.
