Eagles' Harvey Named Big Sky POW

by EWU Athletics Media Relations

Continuing his high-scoring ways, Eastern guard Tyler Harvey has been selected as this week's Big Sky Conference Player of the Week after his 30-point performance against Seattle in an 82-75 victory last Friday, Nov. 29. He is a sophomore from Torrance, Calif., and graduated from Bishop Montgomery High School in 2011.

Harvey made 9-of-15 shots from the field, including 6-of-9 3-point attempts, and also sank all six of his free throws. He has now averaged 18.6 points per game in his last 15 games as an Eagle after averaging 1.3 points in his first 13 outings.

In recording the 49th performance of 30 points or more in school history (currently tied with nine others for 39th), Harvey sank four crucial free throws in the final three minutes to help Eastern improve to 5-2 on the season. It’s the best start in five seasons for EWU, which was 6-2 to start the 2008-09 season.

“Tyler obviously had a tremendous game,” said Eastern head coach Jim Hayford. “He is an extremely talented offensive player, and he has improved in every level of his game. For him to come and get 30 points shows that he is a great guy to coach, and he is a great person.”

For the season, Harvey is averaging 20.3 points per game to rank 52nd in NCAA Division I and second in the Big Sky. He is fourth nationally in 3-pointers per game with a league-leading average of 4.0 per game.

Eastern's next game is this Sunday, Dec. 8, when the Eagles play at unbeaten Saint Mary's in Moraga, Calif.

A year ago, Harvey scored 132 points (16.5 average) on 55 percent shooting from the field (52-of-94, including 20-of-44 3-point attempts) in EWU’s last eight games. In the first 13 games he played in the 2012-13 season, Harvey scored just 17 points. For the season, he played in 21 of EWU’s 31 games and averaged 14.0 minutes and 7.1 points per game.
