KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Senior guard Alex Wolf was named the Male Scholar Athlete of the Week by the Mid-American Conference for his work at the World Vision Invitational last week in Logan, Utah. Wolf, a civil engineering major with a 3.32 GPA, scored a season high 12 points in the event's finale against Idaho State.

Wolf came off the bench to spark Western Michigan in a 63-60 win over Idaho State to close out the 2010 World Vision Invitational. Wolf scored a season high 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting from the field, including going 2-for-3 from beyond the arc. Both three-point FGs were critical in the Broncos' win with the first coming on a fast break that pushed WMU's lead from one to four points. The second gave WMU its largest lead of the game at five points. It was the fourth time in Wolf's career that he has scored in double figures and the first time since scoring a career high 18 points against Ball State on March 4, 2010. For the week, Wolf was 5-for-7 from the field and 3-for-5 from three-point range. He also hit 4-of-5 free throws over the three game span.

This is the second MAC Scholar Athlete of the Week nod for Wolf in his career. He was named by Scholar Athlete and MAC West Player of the Week once during the 2009-10 season.
