LAS CRUCES, N.M. (March 6)-New Mexico State junior forward Troy Gillenwater garnered first team All-WAC honors as voted on by the nine league coaches. This is Gillenwater’s first career All-WAC selection. This is the fifth consecutive season the Aggies have had a first team all-conference honoree.  

 

Gillenwater leads the Aggies with 19.2 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. In conference games, he averaged 20.1 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. He has 12 games over 20 points this year and 15 in his career.

 

“I’m very happy for Troy,” head coach Marvin Menzies said. “He earned first team honors for his consistent play. His ability to score night in and night out helped us finish in the upper echelon of the conference”

 

Gillenwater set a career high with 34 points in the overtime win against Boise State, 96-87, Jan. 27. He has now surpassed the 30-point plateau four times this year and has recorded four double-doubles in 2010-11. 

 

He became the 27th member of the Aggie 1,000-point club, March 2. Gillenwater joined the club with his second field goal of the game against No. 25/21 Utah State. He now ranks No. 24 on the Aggies’ all-time list with 1,035 career points. Last year, Gillenwater was named to the WAC All-Tournament Team after helping the Aggies to the 2010 WAC Tournament title.

 

The Aggies garnered the No. 3 seed in the WAC Tournament and a first round bye with their 77-68 win over Nevada, March 5. NM State plays the winner of the No. 6 seed Nevada-No. 7 seed Fresno State game, Thursday, March 10 at 3:30 p.m. on ESPNU.
