Shahid Named Summit League Player of the Week

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (NDSU Athletics) – North Dakota State guard Vinnie Shahid garnered the first #SummitMBB Player of the Week award of his career, league officials announced Monday. The senior scored a career-high 30 points in leading the Bison to a road win at CSU Northridge

Shahid is the second straight Bison to win the weekly award as NDSU becomes the first squad with multiple recipients in 2019-20.

The Minneapolis native scored 18 of those points in the second half while NDSU held off a late rally by the Matadors. He finished 10-for-20 from the field, including a 6-for-10 clip from beyond the arc. His six makes from distance also equaled his career-high set last season as a junior at Oral Roberts.

Shahid also made all four of his foul shots and grabbed six rebounds while dishing out two assists in what was the seventh win of non-conference play for NDSU.
