Mitrovic Nabs WCC Player of the Month Honors

SAN BRUNO, Calif. --- Portland Pilots junior forward Nemanja Mitrovic, who currently ranks second in the country in three-point field goal percentage, was named the West Coast Conference Men’s Basketball Co-Player of the Month for December, which was announced on Thursday. Mitrovic shares the award with Matthew Dellavedova, a sophomore guard from Saint Mary’s.

Mitrovic helped lead the Pilots to a 6-1 record in December, while averaging 17.4 points per game. During the month, he shot 57 percent from the field and 88 percent at the foul line. Mitrovic went 30-for-48 from the three-point line for a 63 percent shooting average from beyond the arc.

He finished the month with three consecutive games of 20 or more points. The Toronto native scored a career-high 22 points against Boise State on Dec. 22 and matched that total on Dec. 27 versus Nevada. Mitrovic then sparked a second-half comeback win over Utah on Dec. 31 with 18 points after the break and 21 total. He made at least two three-pointers in all seven games and four or more in six games.

Mitrovic and the Pilots are set to open play in the WCC with a game against the Gonzaga Bulldogs in Spokane, Wash., on Saturday. The game will tip-off at 5:30 p.m. and will be broadcast live on Fox SportsNet NW.
