Stillwater graduate Alex Oman was named the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference men’s basketball athlete of the week on Dec. 10 after leading UW-Stout to victories over UW-Whitewater and UW-Superior.
The Lake Elmo native scored 18 of his game-high 20 points in the second half of a 74-69 victory over previously undefeated and No. 4-ranked UW-Whitewater on Dec. 7. After scoring just two points in the first half, Oman connected on 6 of 7 shots, including two from three-point range, Oman also collected three rebounds and dished out two assists. In a previous victory over UW-Superior, Oman came off the bench to score 14 points, four rebounds and two assists.
