North Dakota State University senior guard Tyson Ward has been named the Summit League's player of the week, according to league officials.

Ward averaged more than 20 points per game, while picking up seven rebounds per game and five-and-a-half assists per game in a week where the Bison defeated the University of South Dakota and the University of North Dakota.

Ward capped the weekend with a double-double against UND, with a season-high 27 points and 11 rebounds.

This week's award is the second career weekly honor for the Tampa, Florida, native.
