Sahvir Wheeler - Launches 18 shots Wheeler contributed 13 points (5-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-5 FT), five rebounds, 12 assists and one steal over 36 minutes during Saturday's 86-81 loss to Colorado State.
Impact Across his five-year collegiate career, Wheeler has never exceeded 18 shot attempts, but he matched his high-water mark in Saturday's loss. Shooting partially out of necessity with Koren Johnson (zero points) on a short leash and Nate Calmese (undisclosed) inactive, Wheeler's undersized nature and historically subpar floor spacing is not built to thrive with volume. Nonetheless, his facilitation helped Washington keep pace with a high-octane Colorado State team, and Wheeler's fantasy standing has reaped the benefits of a heavy minute share. His 35.8 assist rate is a top-40 mark in the country.
