SAN LUIS OBISPO – Capping an historic career and senior season, guard Donovan Fields was named to the All-Big West Conference second team on Monday morning while also earning the first Big West Hustle Player of the Year honor in program history.
Fields, who started 28 of 29 games this past season, finished sixth in the Big West scoring race at 17.0 points per game. He also ranks fifth with both 4.1 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Fields scored 20-plus points 11 times this year, chalked up a team leading 22 double-digit scoring games and posted four of the top five scoring games by a Mustang.
Cal Poly's all-time leading free throw shooter at 87.4 percent, Fields is the only player in program history to record at least 1,000 career points, distribute 300-plus assists and produce more than 100 steals. Categorically, Fields – in just three seasons – ranks ninth in program history with 1,245 points, sixth with 303 assists and seventh with 112 steals. In 91 career games, Fields scored in double figures 61 times.
Fields is the first Mustang to earn a spot on an All-Big West team since guard Ridge Shipley was named to the second team for the 2016-17 season.
Fields, who shared Monday's Big West Hustle Player of the Year award with UC Santa Barbara senior forward Jarriesse Blackmon, is the first Mustang to win a specialty award since guard Maliik Love was named Big West Co-Freshman of the Year for the 2010-11 season.
