Alecia Chamberlin of Rocky Mountain College and Danielle Wagner of Carroll College were also nominated.

Wyman is a 6-7 senior guard from Great Falls. The third-ranked Saints won their only game of the week, a 76-68 Frontier Conference victory over Montana Tech.

In the win, Wyman scored 20 points, pulled down 12 rebounds, had two assists and three steals. He was 4 of 12 from the field and 12 of 14 (86 percent) from the free throw line.

Dana Abe of Lewis-Clark State, Kooper Kidgell of Montana Western and Jared Samuelson of Rocky Mountain College were also nominated.
