BOZEMAN - This week's Athlete of the Week comes rising off the floor like a rocket, burying a three-pointer then turning on the defense, disrupting his opponent's next play.
Next, he comes flying down the court, making a sensational pass in traffic to Flavien Davis, insuring a Bobcat victory.
His name is Antonio Biglow, a junior college transfer from Los Angeles where he was the southern California JC player of the year. He's listed at six feet tall.
Biglow has only been a full time starter for the last two games after Xavier Blount went down with an injury, but in those two games, he's responded with 40 points and great defense.
"Antonio certainly played very well over the weekend and he kind of gave some confidence to everyone on the team. I thought he managed the games well on both ends and that's great to see," MSU men's basketball coach Brad Huse said.
Huse talks glowingly about a buy he suspended for three games earlier this season for attitude problems. Even to this day, Huse won't let Biglow be interviewed, but his teammates have plenty to say about him.
"He's got a lot better. He's found his flow. Offensively, he's shooting the ball well these last couple of games. He's made some big plays defensively. He's just kind of become the player he wanted to be. He didn't have the start he wanted, but he's finishing real good," MSU senior guard Christian Moon said.
